Description Robert Golding 2008-03-14 18:58:41 UTC
When checking dmesg for something else came accross theis error message:
Driver 'sr' needs updating - please use bus_type methods.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot machine
2.check dmesg where drives added
3.

Actual Results:  
dmesg shows the error but everything works OK.  I just don't like to see error messages.


I was checking for ACPI changes after getting the acpid to work and found the above error message.  I do not understand how the latest release of a kernel can be asking for the driver (sr) to be updated when it is working properly.
I also am not sure where the 'sr' driver is, is it part of the libata sub-system?  I am using only the new libata stuff and have the older generic ide stuff all as 'NO'.

Following is my 'emerge --info', I will attach dmesg and the .config

When the SCSI CD-ROM driver (Linux kernel, file sr.c) calls "int scsi_register_driver(struct device_driver *drv)" (file scsi_sysfs.c) this function then calls "int driver_register(struct device_driver * drv)" (file driver.c). And here this warning message is printed. I assume that there was a clean-up in the kernel and the SCSI subsystem guys have not caught up yet. So this is not really a bug but a temporary annoyance.
Comment 4 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-15 07:59:19 UTC
This needs to go upstream and not to Gentoo.
Comment 5 Daniel Drake (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-03-16 20:08:02 UTC
Yep. If it bothers you, see if it's fixed in 2.6.25-rc and if not, send a mail to the linux-scsi mailing list. It's not an error message. Thanks for reporting anyway!
Comment 6 Shane Macaulay 2008-04-08 14:29:28 UTC
A workaround is to enable CONFIG_PM_LEGACY.  My system this bug is much more severe as it causes a panic and the / not to mount.
Comment 7 Daniel Drake (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-04-08 14:56:34 UTC
must be a different bug where this harmless and unrelated message appears approximately at the same time, feel feel to open a new bug report
