Well, like I said: "[I] Don't know". I'm not a kernel developer (or even
any developer... yet).
I'm just someone that tests the -rc kernels to see if there's any
problems with my hardware.
I try to report any regressions to lkml, and hopefully help the developers.

To me, who has no knowledge of all these low level issues, the following
error messages
look strikingly similar with a quick glance.

# bug 12609

So, will the patch for 12609 fix my issue also, or does there need to be
another patch?
