Lets start by cleaning up the bugs. I am closing 309682 as it is a
duplicate of 279648. I am also closing 28223 as on examining the
kernel-source-2.6.11 source it appears to be fix, if someone has
experience to the contrary, please reopen it. And I am reassigning
279648 and 282234 to kernel-source-2.6.11 as it is currently assigned to
kernel-source-2.6.9 which has not been suported for quite sime time now.
I don't even think it is on d.o anymore. And as to the severity of the
bug, I don't believe the guidlines specify age as a parameter for bug
As for 279648 itself, the bug report seems to indicate that disabling
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_UB (a very green piece of code introduced in 2.6.11 bug
probably not ready for prime time) resolves the problem, and the current
kernel-images (for i386 at least) do just this. Could you take a look
in your kernel config and if CONFIG_BLK_DEV_UB is enabled, please
