Default Bug#584429: linux-image-2.6.32-3-sparc64-smp: XVR-500 and XVR-2500 drivers need to be re-enabled per bug #508108

Package: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.32-9
Severity: normal


It appears the fix for bug #508108 has been regressed.

It appears that CONFIG_FB_XVR500 and CONFIG_FB_XVR2500 are no longer set in newer kernels than the kernel shipped with Lenny
(linux-image-2.6.26-2-sparc64-smp). This causes workstations to because unresponsive at the console when the kernel attempts
to handoff the console output to the framebuffer in newer versions of the kernel (linux-image-2.6.32-3-sparc64-smp).

In order to fix this problem, I had to use a serial console on the workstation and recompile the kernel with both options
re-enabled and everything works fine.

Please restore this functionality to future kernels.
