New version (2.4.18-pre9.2) of AMD Elan patch

New version (2.4.18-pre9.2) of AMD Elan patch

Post by Robert Schwebe » Tue, 12 Feb 2002 22:45:40



A new version of the AMD Elan patch is available on

  http://www.pengutronix.de/software/elan_en.html

This patch against 2.4.18-pre9 deals with the following stuff:

- serial driver bugfix (was sent to Theodore Ts'o)
- correct ioport resource reservation for /proc/ioport

If you have an AMD Elan processor (SC400, SC410, SC520) please test this
fix extensively and send me bug reports. You might also want to test it
if
you don't have this special hardware, as the patch now does also
affect  
the normal serial driver.

1. Elan patch 2.4.18-pre9.1 released

A new version of the AMD Elan patch is available on

  http://www.pengutronix.de/software/elan_en.html

This patch against 2.4.18-pre9 - as the last ones as well - consists
only  
of a bugfix for the serial driver. All other stuff has been merged into
the mainstream kernel so far. The implementation of the fix has been
changed according to a suggestion by Theodore Ts'o in this revision.

If you have an AMD Elan processor (SC400, SC410, SC520) please test this
fix extensively and send me bug reports. You might also want to test it
if
you don't have this special hardware, as the patch now does also
affect  
the normal serial driver.

On my todo list is the fix for the /proc/ioports resources which is
currently not part of the patch as well as a cpufreq driver.
