Subject2.5 Problem Report Status

The following status report update can be found at:
http://members.cox.net/tmolina/kernprobs/021004-status.html

The latest update can be found at:
http://members.cox.net/tmolina/kernprobs/status.html


Notes:
* Items marked closed or probable fix will be deleted after Linus
issues the next patch version
* Numerous people are reporting oops on boot in 2.5.39. It appears
the problems are all caused by a bug in isapnp initialization. The
fix is either to disable isapnp or patch in a workaround.

status of this? I'm getting ready to drop it from the list.

6. http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=103270005902896&w=2
This appears to be a long-running problem. Is it related to the group of
problems below involving "function might sleep while holding a lock" or is
it a scheduling system problem?

9. http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=103281667726673&w=2

10. http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=103351848816172&w=2
