PROBLEM: 2.6.30 fails to detect hardware limitation requiring "noapic"
Hello, I hope this is the right place to report a kernel bug. I have an Acer desktop, bog standard system. My previous kernel 2.6.26 tells me that I need to set option "noapic", and then halts. This behaviour is correct. Although it would be nice if the kernel dealt with noapic automatically, the attempt t... 16 Mar 2010 22:06

[GIT PULL] XFS update for 2.6.34-rc1
I hope you'll accept the following for 2.6.34-rc3, if not -rc2. The first two are patches I neglected to include in my first batch for 2.6.34. The second is minor, but gets rid of some bogus warning messages in the event of a forced shutdown. -Alex The following changes since commit 57d54889cd00db27529... 16 Mar 2010 19:50
[PATCH] powerpc: fix swiotlb to respect the boot option
powerpc initializes swiotlb before parsing the kernel boot options so swiotlb options (e.g. specifying the swiotlb buffer size) are ignored. Any time before freeing bootmem works for swiotlb so this patch moves powerpc's swiotlb initialization after parsing the kernel boot options, mem_init (as x86 does). Sign... 16 Mar 2010 19:50
