Description Arjan van de Ven 2002-11-26 15:19:31 UTC
This is a master bug for marking bugs as duplicate against where the original
bug happened while using binary only kernel modules. Binary only kernel modules
are in general not supported in Red Hat Linux. Bugreports with binary only
modules loaded are generally not useful for several reasons:
* It's not unlikely that the bug is caused by this module, and we don't have the
source so we cannot fix it. The oops doesn't even have to be directly in the
module code; kernel modules link into the kernel and can do all kinds of bad
things that will cause breakage elsewhere.
* People who use binary only kernel modules often cannot run special kernels
with added diagnostics because said diagnostics break the module
* Even if we were able to fix a core bug, upgrading to a fixed kernel is often
prevented by this binary only module

If you can reproduce your bug without the module ever being loaded since a
reboot, you are more than welcome to reopen your original bug and state this fact.
