Description Hendrik Borghorst 2007-04-02 19:32:27 UTC
Description of problem:
I've installed FC7T3 and it tries to boot but when it tries loading udev it
locks up with the message: "the code is fine but needs lockdep annotation.
> [13440.772455] turning off the locking correctness validator." and some debug
printout. If I blacklist the b2c2-flexcop-pci module than FC7 boots right.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 7 Rawhide

How reproducible:
100% every reboot

Steps to Reproduce:
1.modprobe b2c2-flexcop-pci
2.see the lock
Actual results:
System freeze

Expected results:
working dvb :-)

Additional info:
I've an Technisat Airstar 2 DVB-T Card.

Patch to fix the problem

In the flexcop-pci.c spin_lock is used before it was initialized by
spin_lock_init. Hope to include this.

Has this been sent upstream at all yet? I don't see it in the main v4l-dvb tree,
but that doesn't mean someone already knows about it...

If not, Michael, can I talk you into taking a look at it? :)

I've got a box with a b2c2-flexcop-pci card I can throw a rawhide kernel at
pretty easily to see if I can reproduce and validate the fix, if it helps.

Patrick maintains this driver...  There is discussion in the following thread:

Comment 4 Michael Krufky 2007-04-05 19:56:59 UTC
Mauro pushed the patch into v4l-dvb.hg master repository today:;node=a80058519add

Works fine with the latest kernels in my own b2c2-flexcop-pci box.
