This entry is being used for tracking a regression from 2.6.27. Please don't
close it until the problem is fixed in the mainline.

Hi, this bug affects me too, reverting 6902c0bead4c fixes the issue for me.

Input: gameport - make gameport_register_driver() return errors
Perform actual driver registration right in gameport_register_driver()
instead of offloading it to kgameportd and return proper error code to
callers if driver registration fails.
Note that driver <-> port matching is still done by kgameportd.

Fix gameport driver binding
I think this should fix the problem, it would be great if you could test it. Thanks!
I 'll try to test it soon, thanks :)

Sorry for taking so long to test, it looks like 2.6.29 broke my
pxeboot/nfsroot setup with the test machine.
But 2.6.29-rc6 works, so:
1) boot with snd_ens1371 blacklisted so that it doesn't load
2) modprobe snd_ens1371 joystick_port=1
3) look for existence of /dev/input/js0
Vanilla 2.6.29-rc6: the problem is still there. No /dev/input/js0 device.
Vanilla 2.6.29-rc6 + dmitry's patch: /dev/input/js0 shows up as expected.
So, as far as I 'm concerned the problem is fixed.
You can add tested-by: Pantelis Koukousoulas <firstname.lastname@example.org> if that helps.
The patch is in mainline, shoudl appear in 2.6.30-rc3; closing.
