Fedora 12 patches for browsing
 
We've ended up talking a good bit about what's in Fedora with respect to Nouveau,
and today bryce and I also wondered about some possible EDID patches.

I've taken the current Fedora 12 kernel build tree and put it here:
http://www.ai4qr.com/fedora12kernel/rpmbuild/ for browsing.

For those unfamiliar with rpm, the patches all live here alongside the source
tarball:
http://www.ai4qr.com/fedora12kernel/rpmbuild/SOURCES/

It's not uncommon for fedora packages to carry cruft patch files which
aren't applied, so for any patch that concerns you, see if it's included in
the spec file: http://www.ai4qr.com/fedora12kernel/rpmbuild/SPECS/kernel.spec

The changelog is at the bottom of the .spec file.

Please have a look to satisfy any questions.

Some observations:

They are carrying 126 patches, but some are null, and it looks like only 108
of them are applied in the .spec file.

Nouveau drops in as a large patch, it'll take some comparing to figure out
where they got it from.

Here are some bugs referenced in the changelog having to do with nouveau:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=532924
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=532711
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=532579
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=529292

These aren't all closed, even though they are referenced in the changelog
and there's a patch. There are lots of references to nouveau in the changelog
over the last three months, it looks like it took a lot of work. Hopefully all
that work has been upstreamed.


A few others that looked interesting:

linux-2.6.31-cpuidle-faster-io.patch
linux-2.6-dell-laptop-rfkill-fix.patch
tg3-06-fix-5906-transmit-hangs.patch

Bryce - there is a pile of drm patches, including drm-edid-retry.patch,
which I didn't see in a quick look at linus's tree.

Enjoy :)

Steve

Alberto (cc'd) found some "EDID" patches in the Moblin tree - maybe
worth seeing if they're the same ones?
