Just so that this is crystal clear: http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/src/sys/amd64/conf/GENERIC As of this moment, device sbp is commented out of the GENERIC kernel configuration for RELENG_8_0 branch *and* tagged with the RELENG_8_0_0_RELEASE tag, so the release build will have sbp disabled in the default GENERIC kernel configuration. (In other words, you should not have boot hangs by default due to firewire in 8.0 release) As far is 7.x is concerned, the current RELENG_7 branch (as of this moment) still has device sbp enabled. As far as 7.3 or future MFC to RELENG_7 of a fix or workaround, that remains to be seen, but the best thing to do is to make certain that the PR has all the necessary information provided, and to occasionally test with the latest -current (9.0) source and provide any debugging information if asked. 9.0 (aka -current) specifically left device sbp enabled so that people can continue to test and fix this bug (gives better exposure to the code). Make sense ? Good Luck. --_Dave _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
