    Subject2.5 Problem Report Status
    The latest version of the followng problem report status page can be found 
    at: http://members.cox.net/tmolina/kernprobs/status.html

    Notes:
    * Off-list email sent to me regarding these reports is much
    appreciated. Relevant comments to a problem report will
    be added to the discussion thread unless specifically requested not
    to. If you do send me a comment, please CC the
    list.
    * Great progress has been made in forward porting IDE driver code
    from 2.4 to 2.5. Several people have tried 2.5.33
    without disaster. Updates continue to be added to the -ac kernels
    and the 2.5 bitkeeper kernels.
    * Floppy support is currently semi-broken/semi-fixed in 2.5.
    The driver currently works (as of 2.5.33-bk) on
    filesystems with 512-byte blocks (e.g. vfat/msdos) but has
    produced corruption on filesystems with other block
    sizes such as ext2, minix, etc. Update: Several fixes to the
    floppy driver itself and the bio layer have improved
    things. This needs more testing and confirmation that the fix is
    in.
    * Support for __FUNCTION__ pasting is being phased out of gcc. This
    has broken compiling in numerous places. Defines
    of the form:
    #define func_enter() sx_dprintk (SX_DEBUG_FLOW, "sx: enter "
    __FUNCTION__ "\n")
    need to be changed to the form:
    #define func_enter() sx_dprintk (SX_DEBUG_FLOW, "sx: enter %s\n",
    __FUNCTION__)
    * Items marked with "No further discussion" have not had any
    additional comments posted to the mailing list for one
    or more development point releases. These items will be archived
    when Linus issues the next point release.
