H i , and happy holidays for all !
I'm a new member in fedora system developpement, if you want to give me the
ne cessary documentat ions about the kernel developpement.
In the reality I want to make a mobile edition fedora, so for this project,
I need some information about the processors technology, and some related
hardware, and finally, if possible the mobile edition processors like ARM,
samsung ... ect
I wanting for you response !
I'd like to see the fedora kernel enable the null pointer hardening work
I did upstream by default.
Upstream refused to turn it on as it is known to break non-root users of
dosemu and they felt very strongly that not one user could break. It
can be easily disabled with an entry in sysctl.conf for any such users.
Certainly turning this on is something we would want to release note in
F9 (which I don't know the process to do)
This must not be applied to F8 until at least after the rebase to 2.6.24
as the 2.6.23 implementation of my hardening work is known buggy and
causes unneeded issues.
Would anyone have a problem carrying this patch in fedora? This would
be a forever fedora'ism.

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=240105 both appear to
address failure of the kernel to load firmware in the initrd phase of
system booting. I can confirm that the second (aic94xx) bug, although it
results in a failure during boot, if followed by rmmod aic94xx and then
modprobe aic94xx results in firmware being properly loaded and the
system able to make use of disks attached to the controller. I can also
state that the nash find command locates the proper firmware file within
the initrd file system even though the kernel fails to locate it. This
takes place on a x86_64 system with both kernel-184.108.40.206-49.fc8 and
kernel-220.127.116.11-63.fc8 and mkinitrd-6.0.19-4.fc8 (I modified mkinitrd to
include the nash find command.)
My question is: is firmware loading working for anyone with recent
Fedora kernels or is there some sort of bug in the kernel firmware
routines exercised only by an initrd file system?
