    SubjectRe: 2.6.23-rc4-mm1
    (To list based on CC's in net-add-ath5k-wireless-driver-fix.patch . If
    that is in error, apologies)

    On (31/08/07 21:58), Andrew Morton didst pronounce:

    I thought I would give the ath5k driver a shot on my Thinkpad T60p to see
    what happened but it wasn't particularly successful. lspci -v shows

    03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications, Inc. AR5212 802.11abg NIC (rev 01)
    Subsystem: IBM ThinkPad 11a/b/g Wireless LAN Mini Express Adapter (AR5BXB6)
    Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 22
    Memory at edf00000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K]
    Capabilities: [40] Power Management version 2
    Capabilities: [50] Message Signalled Interrupts: Mask- 64bit- Queue=0/0 Enable-
    Capabilities: [60] Express Legacy Endpoint IRQ 0
    Capabilities: [90] MSI-X: Enable- Mask- TabSize=1
    Capabilities: [100] Advanced Error Reporting
    Capabilities: [140] Virtual Channel

    During boot, the following relevant information in dmesg shows up;

    ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:03:00.0[A] -> GSI 17 (level, low) -> IRQ 21
    PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:03:00.0 to 64
    Uhhuh. NMI received for unknown reason b1 on CPU 0.
    You have some hardware problem, likely on the PCI bus.
    Dazed and confused, but trying to continue
    ath5k_hw_nic_wakeup: failed to resume the MAC Chip
    ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:03:00.0 disabled
    ath_pci: probe of 0000:03:00.0 failed with error -5

    Needless to say, it fails to bring up networking later. I have no real idea
    how to debug something like this. Any suggestions?
