This entry is being used for tracking a regression from 2.6.35. Please don't
close it until the problem is fixed in the mainline.
Do the issues go away when you boot with "idle=poll"?
After bumping to -rc8 with cpu_idle but without cpu_idle_intel compiled i can't reproduce the issue anymore.
It's really strange because i could not see any commit related to a similar issue.
I'll wait 2.6.36 vanilla to be out to test again with the intel module too.
please re-open if you can reproduce this with 2.6.36-rc8 or later
i confirm 2.6.36 final with
looks stable now.
i will reopen if any issues happen
Thanks for confirming 2.6.36 is working, Patrizio.
Please let us know if you see any troubles with the release,
no matter the .config
