Subject: 3.3-rc6: Reported regressions from 3.2
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.video.dri.devel
Date: Sunday 4th March 2012 20:29:30 UTC (over 6 years ago)
Hi all,

It looks like many people have switched away from the kernel Bugzilla
after the kernel.org outage and they are using various means of reporting
(and tracking) kernel bugs.  For this reason, it's becoming increasingly
difficult for us to track all of the possible sources of reports and we
are not aware of a number of them as a result.  To tackle this issue we
kindly request that regression reports be CCed or forwarded to the LKML
as stated below.



This message contains a list of some regressions from 3.2,
for which there are no fixes in the mainline known to the tracking team.
If any of them have been fixed already, please let us know.

If you know of any other unresolved regressions from 3.2, please let us
know either and we'll add them to the list.  Moreover, when you are
reporting a kernel regression, please send a CC of your report to the LKML
(or forward it to the LKML if you are not reporting the regression by
with the word "regression" in the subject, as that will make it much
easier for us to find it.  Also, please let us know if any of the entries
below are invalid.

Each entry from the list will be sent additionally in an automatic reply
to this message with CCs to the people involved in reporting and handling
the issue.
