Description Sascha Wuestemann 2005-03-28 05:56:12 UTC
I am using kernel 2.6.8-rc4. I have an usb-wlan network interface supported by the CVS drivers of Modprobing uhci-hcd works fine and it also kernel-autmatically loads the wlan modules:

whenever I load the cipe modules I get the Oops.

Is this a kernel module bug of uhci-hcd and what should I do?

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.modprobing uhc-hcd
2.waiting for at76c503 modules to be ready loaded
3.modprobing cipe modules and configuring the interfaces.

Actual Results:  
Kernel Oops, see the attachement.

Expected Results:  
work fine.

In between I have stepped back to kernel v2.4.28-gentoo-r8 and I have no problems at all with usb, wlan and cipe, so my problem seem kernelrelated.

FYI: I have to compile the at76c503 cvs-version and cipe v1.6.0 against the running kernel and it sources to get the correspondig modules and binaries.

Do you think that I should post a bugreport to the kernel mailinglist, too?
Or do you think that this case is due to the gentoo kernel patches?

Please see if net-wireless/at76c503a-0.12_beta19 fixes this issue.
Comment 4 Henrik Brix Andersen 2005-05-21 14:28:41 UTC
Closing due to lack of feedback.
