Subjectsym53c8xx driver bug in 2.4.10
Hi!

I tried the latest XINE dvd player and as soon as it wanted
to decrypt a DVD, it caused an oops in the kernel.
After patching the kernel with sym-2.1.13-for-linux-2.4.9.patch.gz
the oops did not appear and I was able to play my DVDs.

For the record, the oops happened on vanilla 2.4.10,
2.4.10 + preempt, 2.4.10 + preempt + block-highmem-all-15,
and 2.4.10 + 00_vm-tweaks-1 + preempt + block-highmem-all-15.
The oops I saved was from the last combination. From these oopses,
I got the idea that the in-kernel sym53c8xx driver has a small bug
which the sym2 driver patch eliminated.

Best regards,
Zoltan Boszormenyi
