From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050325 Firefox/1.0.2 (Debian package 1.0.2-1) Description of problem: ia64 needs an extra cache flush to ensure the icache is coherent when modules are loaded.

Created attachment 112590 [details] proposed patch
Comment 3 Rohit Seth 2005-04-12 16:16:40 UTC
We are seeing this issue on systems in Intel. Please raise the priroity of this issue to high. This is must fix for EL3 U6 (A lot of our internal validation teams are dependent on this issue).
Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2005-04-13 22:54:17 UTC
Thanks for the report, and the patch. We have reviewed the issue and believe the patch is safe to apply. We've also confirmed that this patch has already been integrated into X.Org CVS HEAD, and is being considered as a candidate for the 6.8.x stable branch tree as well, so we've approved it for inclusion in RHEL3 U6 also. Once U5 has been released, and our CVS tree is unfrozen, we will incorporate the fix into RHEL3 and build new packages in the RHEL3 U6 tree. When new rpm packages are built, we'll make packages available to you for testing, and update the status here. Thanks again.
Comment 7 Mike A. Harris 2005-05-19 19:05:59 UTC
Status update: The patch for this issue is in our queue to be included in RHEL U6. Once RHEL U6 is finalized and we're certain no further rebuilds will be required for U6, we will be opening our CVS tree for U6, and the changes will be committed to CVS at that time. We will also provide updated rpm packages at that time, and update the status of this report. Thanks.

Correction - the last comment should have read: Status update: The patch for this issue is in our queue to be included in RHEL U6. Once RHEL U5 is finalized and we're certain no further rebuilds will be required for U5, we will be opening our CVS tree for U6, and the changes will be committed to CVS at that time.

PM ACK for U6
