Driver i82365.o causes hang at shutdown
Does anyone have an idea why loading the i82365.o driver from
pcmcia-cs would cause my HP N5195 laptop (running Woody and a slightly
modified kernel) to hang at powerdown? Fortunately, it gets past
unmounting, so it's more of a hassle than a problem (though it does
make reboots equivlent to a halt/restart).
This is enough to recreate it:
<login as root>
$ insmod i82365
$ rmmod i82365
If I don't load i82365, it reboots fine. Could the driver be tweaking
something in the BIOS? Or perhaps it's not letting go of something
when it removes itself...?
I compiled the pcmcia modules from source (with make-kpkg), against a
2.2.18 kernel. Sorry, I haven't verified yet if PCMCIA is actually
working. I'm just trying to get ready for the SMC wireless LAN stuff
I ordered. FWIW, everything seems to be loading okay. It's just the
system shutdown that's acting funny
