Bug#595802: linux-2.6: spins forever on loading hostap-pci module in 2.6.32-5-486 rev 19,20,21
When I load the hostap-pci module on my laptop, it spins forever with
the not very informative message "__ratelimit: 123456 callbacks
suppressed" over and over. (that number obviously varies but is
usually 6 digits).
The laptop is crusoe-based, hence the -486 kernel.
It works properly in 2.6.32-5-486 rev 15,17,18 and experimental's
2.6.35; it started breaking in this way w/ 2.6.32-5-486 rev 19.
Neither keyboard nor ACPI events are parsed while spinning.
This seems to be the same as archlinux bug 20726.
