This entry is being used for tracking a regression from 2.6.24.  Please don't
close it until the problem is fixed in the mainline.
Comment 1 Auke Kok 2008-04-09 09:14:42 UTC
This bug is invalid, per design users have to switch to e1000e for some of the devices previously supported by e1000. This is _not_ a regression, only a migration problem.
Comment 2 Rafael J. Wysocki 2008-04-09 13:10:01 UTC

Ingo, please reopen if you see fit.

fix patch

this patch fixes the problem for me.
Comment 4 Ingo Molnar 2008-04-09 13:48:33 UTC
a "migration problem" that resulted in a non-working networking interface and caused me more than 1 hour of debugging is a very good example of how we define regressions ...

Comment 7 Jesse Brandeburg 2008-10-06 12:29:46 UTC
seems like we should still fix this?
Comment 8 Adrian Bunk 2008-10-08 05:18:40 UTC
Especially after commit d03157babed7424f5391af43200593768ce69c9a the only reasonable action seems to be a resolution as WILL_NOT_FIX.
Comment 9 Jesse Brandeburg 2009-02-26 11:46:24 UTC
this bug can be closed, the patch suggested won't even work any more because the device ID's were all moved over to e1000e.
