Bug#351832: linux-source-2.6.15: fails to reboot on laptop averatec 3156X

Package: linux-source-2.6.15
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

I noticed that whenever I did an init 6 on my laptop, it would hang and
neither reboot nor shutdown. Initially I noticed this with linux 2.6.15.
To narrow the bug down to a specific kernel version, I spent my afternoon
compiling vanilla kernels from 2.6.12 through 2.6.15. I was able to
pinpoint the error. works, whereas 2.6.14 doesn't. With the
help of a friend of mine, we could specifically narrow it down


If I copy this file from to 2.6.14 and compile, the resulting
kernel is able to reboot without problems.

My Laptop is a Averatec 3156X, which is the same as the american 3150p

I'm interested in getting this bug solved, but have no programming
skills what so ever. But I know how to apply patches and compile
kernels, so you could send me some patches for testing.

Greetings, Lee
