Bug Description

Update the ubuntu/alx/update.sh import script to fetch from the new "official" QCA git repo URL git://github.com/qca/alx.git and update our driver snapshot to pick up these upstream alx fixes:

  f488842 alx: fix DMA-write-pending issue
  35d67ef alx: fix dead loop for hardware fatal error

Applies to Raring and Quantal.

This bug is missing log files that will aid in diagnosing the problem. From a terminal window please run:

apport-collect 1154238

and then change the status of the bug to 'Confirmed'.

If, due to the nature of the issue you have encountered, you are unable to run this command, please add a comment stating that fact and change the bug status to 'Confirmed'.

This change has been made by an automated script, maintained by the Ubuntu Kernel Team.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed' to 'verification-done'.

If verification is not done by one week from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!

I don't know how to do this, but this bug also affects precise (12.04.02), using linux-lts-quantal kernel.

Is "precise" a project, a distribution, or a tag?

@Bernardo- Since this issue isn't related to the _standard_ Precise kernel, we list this as a bug in Precise. (This fix does appear in the lts-backport-quantal kernel by virtue of it being fixed in the standard Quantal kernel, but we don't need a "Precise bug" to track that).

Correction... I left out a couple of crucial words ...

@Bernardo- Since this issue isn't related to the _standard_ Precise kernel, we WILL NOT list this as a bug in Precise.

The verification of this Stable Release Update has completed successfully and the package has now been released to -updates. Subsequently, the Ubuntu Stable Release Updates Team is being unsubscribed and will not receive messages about this bug report. In the event that you encounter a regression using the package from -updates please report a new bug using ubuntu-bug and tag the bug report regression-update so we can easily find any regresssions.
