SubjectRE: FC3 module sys_print how...
Date
From
Dear Richard,

I have tried your module to print message to the file in the kernel
level.
I am able to get it work till the initialization level. Later when I
insert the card the system hangs.

Please suggest me what could be the problem. Or is there a way to get
all my LOG messages perfectly even when the system hangs after the
reboot.

Waiting for ur suggestions.

Regards,
Mukund Jampala
