Description Roland Kletzing 2010-01-29 20:55:35 UTC
This bugticket is used to track an issue already opened in novell-bugzilla (https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=573244) and reported on linux-scsi and smartmontools-support (http://marc.info/?l=smartmontools-support&m=126462075603274&w=2)

as it appears to be an upstream issue, i`m additionally adding it here. i only have that box for another week or two so it`s a small timeslot to test fixes on that box.

short description:
linux kernel crashes (system freeze) at late installation stage when smartd being started. seems smartd sends an ioctl which the driver (megaraid_mbox) doesn`t like.
