Description Dhananjay Phadke 2008-06-26 19:20:39 UTC
Several bugfixes in netxen nic driver have been submitted to upstream kernel.

There are few more patches are coming to support next revision of netxen chip.

All these patches (including the new ones after their acceptance) need to be
backported to RHEL4 kernel.

Some of the existing patches in upstream kernel have been backported with bug
#443619.

Comment 1 Dhananjay Phadke 2008-06-26 19:25:12 UTC
Correction: bug #443619 does not apply to RHEL4.

Comment 2 Prarit Bhargava 2008-07-07 12:08:18 UTC
Please be advised, that Bugzilla is not a support tool. It is an
Engineering and Community tool. So although all changes to Enterprise
Linux go through Bugzilla and Red Hat considers issues directly entered
into Bugzilla valuable feedback, there is no SLA around it.

If this is a production issue, please report it to your Red Hat Support contact.

Thank you.
