on an x86_64 system. (I had to modify Kconfig in arch/x86_64 to be able to
compile this module, since it depends on ISA support)

I tried to locate where the bug could be(via MESSAGE()), and it seems here:
        self->rx_buff.head =
                dma_alloc_coherent(NULL, self->rx_buff.truesize,
                                   &self->rx_buff_dma, GFP_KERNEL);
(line 331)

the driver in plain 2.6.7 used kmalloc there and it worked fine

Steps to reproduce:

modprobe nsc-ircc

Comment 4 Adrian Bunk 2006-01-01 04:37:11 UTC
Is this issue still present in kernel 2.6.14?
Comment 5 Adrian Bunk 2006-04-15 02:28:47 UTC
I'm assuming this issue is already fixed in recent 2.6 kernels.

Please reopen this bug if it's still present iin
