Output from dmesg just after boot
Description of problem:
While booting and doing things that hits kernel space (I haven't debugged this much, but at least while trigging LVM), the kernel issues a lot of warnings
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot 3.11.0-0.rc5.git3.1.fc20.ppc on an G3 iBook
2. Watch the boot log or output from dmesg
See attached file
I know 32bit ppc is not officially supported by Fedora for powerpc, but in case anyone is interested, I've reported it here.
Very very odd ... we local_irq_disable() in gup so we shouldn't hit that warning unless the in_atomic() test is failing. I'll try to have a look later this week.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 20 development cycle.
Changing version to '20'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This needs fixing upstream.
