    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.

    The problem was beeing investigated, but I never saw any reference to a
    fix being submitted to Linus.

    3. http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=103238248416900&w=2

    This was reported for 2.5.36, but I've not seen any followups nor
    reference to a fix. There have been several updates to loop.c. Does this
    problem still exist? I'm ready to delete it from the list.

    open 18 Sep 2002 DRM/XFree issue
    4. http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=103238121815285&w=2

    This was reported for 2.5.36, but I've not seen any followups nor
    reference to a fix. There have been several updates referring to DRM.
    Does this problem still exist? I'm getting ready to drop it from the
    list.

    5. http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=103244657605155&w=2

    This was being discussed, then data was requested by Matthew Wilcox
    <willy@debian.org> off-list. I've seen no further followups. What is the
    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?
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    open 30 Sep 2002 ide-scsi kernel panic
    7. http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=103336376827272&w=2

    seen any reference to a fix for this one.

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

    Doctor, Doctor it hurts when I build ide modular. Well don't do that
    then. Alan Cox says this won't be fixed until all other problems with the
    ide system get fixed.

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

    objects.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    11. http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=103296031616858&w=2

    Is this specific to the mm tree or does the problem also exist in Linus'
    tree? I've not seen reference to a fix.

    More than one person has reported problems when doing a bk pull. Is this
    a driver problem, or an application problem?

    rct@gherkin.frus.com (Bob_Tracy) reported this for 2.5.38. He was
    requested to try the next version to see if the problem still exists. I
    have not seen a followup. Does the problem still exist?

    18. http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=103313163215676&w=2

    This problem appears related to the other ide-scsi problem reported above.
    Should there be a single item tracking problems with inserting and
    removing ide-scsi related modules?
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This was reported for 2.5.39. Dominik Brodowski <linux@brodo.de> reported
