After applying the patch on Fedora 10 the system bootup hangs after modrpobe.
on ubuntu jaunty i have the system booting fine. But trying to recompile
the test prg on emacs gives me the error message

-UUU:%*--F1 *compilation* All (1,0) (Compilation:run Compiling)----<E> -------
A compilation process is running; kill it? (yes or no)
So i guess even though it gets the error information it cause emacs to think that
the compliation process is still running. The process details listed by emacs
Proc Status Buffer Tty Command
---- ------ ------ --- -------
compilation run *compilation* /dev/pts/2 /bin/bash -c cc -g a.c
But a ps -eaf doesn't list the command running. So something more is going on.
