Good day all,
Please join us tomorrow (October 26th, 2012) at 11am EDT in #fedora-arm on Freenode for another Fedora ARM VFAD!
You can greatly assist us by downloading and testing the Fedora 18 ARM Alpha RC1.
We have a number of images available for testing including - Pandaboard, Trimslice and vexpress (QEMU).
Please find testing instructions here:
All help is appreciated and we look forward to your participation. If your device is not listed and you would like
to offer your assistance, please let us know on the list or the IRC.
I've been seeing lots and lots of these OOPS on Pandaboard ES with
recent'ish f18 image.
By lots and lots I mean hundreds per second, causes log spam, and
eventually eats all the inodes in /var/spool/abrt making reports.
Here is a sample of the backtrace:

These only started showing up the past week or so with various kernels in koji.
Before I start diffing all the config's I figured I'd share with you.
If you have a clue, I'd love to chat with you in #fedora-arm.
I am forwarding this to the ARM list, as this might be of interest to
some of you working on Raspberry PI support.

Subject: [Fedora-legal-list] Update to Binary Firmware Exceptions
Date: Wed, 24 Oct 2012 10:56:24 -0400
From: Tom Callaway <tcallawa(a)redhat.com>
To: legal(a)lists.fedoraproject.org, devel-announce(a)lists.fedoraproject.org
Two minor exceptions have been added to the Licensing Guidelines:
A new exception has been added to permit prebuilt binary QEMU ROMs
implementing BIOS or Firmware for QEMU system targets to be packaged in
those situations where it is not practical or possible to build them
from source, as long as the corresponding source code is also included
in the Source RPM package.
The wording of the Binary Firmware exception has been amended slightly
to permit the packaging and inclusion of firmware files which are
necessary to boot Fedora on some devices (e.g. raspberrypi), as long as
the standard exception criteria are met.
