Re: New Developer Request

Hi Deepak,

I went over the currently open buglist to see if I could contribute by
fixing some of them to start with. One of the questions I had is some
bugs are platform specific / hardware specific.

For eg:

BUG: soft lockup - CPU#3 stuck for 61s! (AMD Phenom 9600 Quad-Core)

To reproduce the problem, fix & test it - you need to have access to
this specific processor? or are there machines out there owned by
specific project groups with a serial access to work on such problems?

The reason am asking this is that quite obviously not everyone will
have access to specific hardware, in such case how developers fix such
specific problems??
