This entry is being used for tracking a regression in the 2.6.32.y and 2.6.33.y
longterm trees. Please don't close it until the problem is fixed there.

The triggering commit was intended to improve power consumption: see bug 5471.
2.6.39.y, which includes the same change, works fine.
Comment 1 Greg Kroah-Hartman 2011-08-31 21:40:02 UTC
This fix will be reverted in the next .32 and .33 releases.
Comment 2 Jonathan Nieder 2011-09-01 20:54:32 UTC
Thanks, Greg!  Work still continues to find what upstream fix is needed to get bug 5471 fixed in those trees again (being tracked at http://bugs.debian.org/622259 at the moment).
