Comment 3 RHEL Product and Program Management 2008-06-11 14:40:48 UTC
This bugzilla has Keywords: Regression.  

Since no regressions are allowed between releases, 
it is also being proposed as a blocker for this release.  

Please resolve ASAP.

Comment 5 Jiri Pirko 2008-07-14 08:33:32 UTC
in kernel-2.6.18-92.1.7.el5

Comment 7 Patrick C. F. Ernzer 2008-07-25 17:36:36 UTC
2.6.18-92.1.7.el5 and 2.6.18-92.1.7.el5PAE boot just fine on the affected
hardware (c.f. Bug 439292).

Should we also ask the people who tested Bug 443853 (2.6.18-95.el5 was
successfully tested in that bug) to test 2.6.18-92.1.7.el5 or is this one
confirmation that it works enough for you?
