Description Norman R. Weathers 2007-02-15 19:10:25 UTC
Description of problem:
On bootup, udevtrigger segfaults, and so many devices are not created during
bootup.  Also, if you try and run udevtrigger later, it hangs.  This is with a
non Fedora kernel ( and a vanilla 2.6.20)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reboot with new kernel

Actual results:
During bootup, the following panic is given:

Expected results:
udev to create the devices and move on.

Additional info:
If you try and run the udevtrigger by hand after you have started up, it just
hangs.  Also, if you try and run the /sbin/start_udev, it also hangs.  It
appears to be hanging within the scan of the usb devices under /sys/class.
Attached is the strace for the udevtrigger when it hangs.
