here's a short summary of bug reports I have received plus a little hacking of
o When Framebuffer support and PROM Console support are enabled,
drivers/video/promcon.c will be compiled wich is SUN specific. Workaround: Do
not enable Framebuffer support.
o Typo in arch/mips/dec/serial.c. Doesn't harm. Will be fixed in 2.1.121.
o Changes in include/asm-mips/stackframe.h do not work for R4x00 CPUs, kernel
hangs. Possible workaround: replace stackframe.h with the one from 2.1.100.
Karel van Houten <K.H.C.vanHouten@research.kpn.com> is investigating this.
o Changes in arch/mips/kernel/r2300_misc.S prevent correct handling of TLB
misses when switching to user mode. The Kernel hangs trying to execute /bin/sh.
Workaround: change #undef NOTLB_OPTIMIZE to #define NOTLB_OPTIMIZE.
o Spurious interrupts. I have a wbflush routine working here, which will be
included in 2.1.121. Affects *only* IOASIC machines. DS2300, DS5100 and
DS5000/200 should work.
o There are some directories missing in the source tree and "make dep" doesn't
work correctly. Workaround: do a "make dep clean netboot" every time you compile
a new kernel.
I will not put out any patches to 2.1.116 because I am already working on
2.1.121 which will fix these bugs anyway. If you have further bug reports or
other patches, please feel free to send them to me.
