Bug#512617: Flood of warnings from hpet_legacy_next_event()
tags 512617 + patch
I'm unfortunately able to reproduce this bug on an HP dc7900 with the
latest available BIOS (V1.11).
The patch in 2.6.28 looks trivial to backport to 2.6.26: it consists simply of
replacing WARN_ON with WARN_ON_ONCE. See
There may be other reasons to prefer 2.6.28 on a dc7900, but I'd still
be grateful if this simple fix could make it into lenny.
