Hi,
I'm just looking at old regression reports...
I could not find any action on this bug besides a commit to ratelimit this message... 

Else the number of commits for the b44 driver is small. Does this issue still exist in current mainline kernels? Also I'm not clear on the implications of this issue.
Comment 5 Florian Mickler 2010-11-30 08:27:08 UTC
I'm closing this now. If this is still an issue on current kernels, or you need more time please shout.

Sorry for the late reply, but it still happens here with 2.6.35.6-48.fc14.x86_64 kernel:

Comment 7 Florian Mickler 2010-11-30 09:45:05 UTC
Ok. I'm not entirely sure what the symptoms are. Do you see any negative effects besides the message in the log?

Nope.
Comment 9 Alan 2012-10-30 17:29:37 UTC
If this is still seen on modern kernels then please re-open/update
