this is a RC bug. The kernel does work, sort of, after all... we're
trying to get beta3 out and I think the -boot team will kill me if
there has to be another kernel rebuild so I suggest we leave it as it
is for now (I've disabled it in SVN already for future releases).
Also, nslu2 is not really a mainstream arch that justifies delaying
everything. This seems like a too small issue to have to rebuild for all
arches to me.
I fully understand your point of view, and I have written in my original
bug report that nslu2 is maybe not a subarchitecture release, so the bug
is maybe not so critical.
However, I also maintain that this kernel is not usable. Your disk is
filled in one or two hours, and the load of the machine is between 1.5
Ccing -boot to get comments. Would there be time for another kernel
upload? If not, I'll downgrade this bug.
An upload would just be possible, especially if it includes no other
changes affecting other arches (so we can skip rebuilding the udebs).
The main delay would be the build for arm which takes over a day...
I'll leave the final decision to the kernel team, but if you upload please
do so ASAP.
I have reported the bug against the 2.6.16 version as I think it is
important for the release. However if you plan to fix the bug later,
fixing it in 2.6.17 is also ok for me. I am not sure my machine is fast
enough to rebuilt the kernel myself (also given the current load I get
doing nothing except filling /var/log/syslog), and I am using this
machine to make test builds of the glibc.
Isn't there a way to work around this at run time (i.e. setting a value to
0 in /proc somewhere that disables the debugging)?
Well I have looked at the code, the debugging messages are printed using
printk(), and their inclusion or not in the final code is done by
preprocessor options (#ifdef #endif).
