dvb-usb: downloading firmware from file 'dvb-usb-dibusb-184.108.40.206.fw'
please see above example what happened and how RACE occurs - this leads to bootup problems (kernel waits few secs before give up). I have 5 USB tuners so this starts to be very annoying.
Could it be fixed, please?
This is a driver bug, reassigning.
Is it still a problem with 2.6.37 and a contemporary distro?
YES it is highest problem when resuming from suspend to disk - system is up but still wait for firmware from udev which sleeps. After timeout it normally wake up
Do you know which driver is affected by this issue?
it is either dib7000p or dib7000m
Bus 002 Device 005: ID 0413:6f00 Leadtek Research, Inc. WinFast DTV Dongle (STK7700P based)
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 0413:6026 Leadtek Research, Inc. WinFast DTV Dongle (warm state)
Thanks for the info.
Please re-open if seen with modern kernels
