I know what causes the messages. Unfortunately the next kernel is already built
so the fix will have to wait a week or so.

Fix is here, for the record:;a=commitdiff_plain;h=c4823bce033be74c0fcfbcae2f1be0854fdc2e18

Comment 3 Bojan Smojver 2007-03-19 20:19:11 UTC
Don't understand the bit about the next kernel already being built. I only see
2.6.20-1.2925.fc6 in updates in no kernels in testing. Did I miss something?

Comment 4 Chuck Ebbert 2007-03-19 20:26:05 UTC
kernel 2933 is built and already on its way to testing.

Comment 5 Bojan Smojver 2007-03-19 20:29:48 UTC
Right. OK.

Comment 6 Bojan Smojver 2007-03-25 21:21:08 UTC
With 2.6.20-1.2933.fc6 this doesn't seem to be happening. So, I guess that fix
made it in after all. If you can confirm this, this can be closed.

Comment 7 Bojan Smojver 2007-03-26 09:17:49 UTC
I lied. Still there.

Comment 8 Chuck Ebbert 2007-03-26 14:30:24 UTC
Test kernels for this issue are at:

Please test and report back.

Comment 9 Bojan Smojver 2007-03-27 07:10:56 UTC
Running it now. Will let you know.

Comment 10 Bojan Smojver 2007-03-27 11:06:58 UTC
So far so good. I'll test more tomorrow and report back.

Comment 11 Bojan Smojver 2007-03-28 07:42:47 UTC
Been running this thing all day today. No more BUGs triggered.
