Description Tom London 2008-07-22 13:35:37 UTC
Description of problem:
I get the following with every boot of -0.166 (but the backtraces vary slight).

System is Thinkpad X60 running latest rawhide.

firmware: requesting iwlwifi-3945-1.ucode
iscsi: registered transport (iser)
Registered led device: iwl-phy0:radio
Registered led device: iwl-phy0:assoc
Registered led device: iwl-phy0:RX
Registered led device: iwl-phy0:TX

[ INFO: possible recursive locking detected ]
2.6.27-0.166.rc0.git8.fc10.i686 #1
NetworkManager/2524 is trying to acquire lock:
 (&dev->addr_list_lock){-...}, at: [<c060b6b8>] dev_mc_sync+0x1c/0x59

but task is already holding lock:
 (&dev->addr_list_lock){-...}, at: [<c06075e6>] dev_set_rx_mode+0x19/0x2b

other info that might help us debug this:
2 locks held by NetworkManager/2524:
 #0:  (rtnl_mutex){--..}, at: [<c061079a>] rtnetlink_rcv+0x17/0x2b
 #1:  (&dev->addr_list_lock){-...}, at: [<c06075e6>] dev_set_rx_mode+0x19/0x2b
