http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/103417 - same file, but on different line, and 2.6.20

P.S.: James, how did you edit your comment?

I think it's because im a dev, i can edit/delete anybodies comments.

what's with that linked one? doubt its the problem you've got, look where the fix is... nfs?

Yes, it's not related, my fault.
I've collected some links at http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?p=221922#221922
I also read kernel changelogs but still cannot find where's the problem.
There was similar reports with 2.6.20-rcX kernels, but with line 47, because #ifdef CONFIG_HIGHMEM is moved few lines below.
From what I've read it looks like it's not highmem.c that needs fixing. That bug is triggered from some other code (report was related to CryptoAPI). :-/

status on .20 kernel series?

turns out my crashes were related to my wireless card. Anyone else here using rt2x00?

Comment by Roman Kyrylych (Romashka) - Wednesday, 07 February 2007, 09:55 GMT
I don't have wireless, and haven't seen crash in latest kernel from .19 series, though it may be because I rarely used my Arch last week.
James, so you don't have crashes in .20 at all?
Comment by James Rayner (iphitus) - Wednesday, 07 February 2007, 12:06 GMT
yet to try 2.6.20

rt2500pci (included in rt2x00-cvs) is an external module, has yet to be merged to vanilla, as it's still in a CVS state.

On 2.6.19, my problems are gone upon blacklisting this driver.

status un .20 series?

I haven't seen it on .20, though I booted only ~10 times, but I also didn't have it in the latest .19.
