Bug Description

SRU Justification: The upstream process for stable tree updates is quite similar in scope to the SRU process, e.g., each patch has to demonstrably fix a bug, and each patch is vetted by upstream by originating either directly from Linus' tree or in a minimally backported form of that patch. The upstream stable patch set is now available. It should be included in the Ubuntu kernel as well.



These are the v2.6.27.5 commits from the linux-2.6.27.y git repository. Note that the SHA1 values in the Intrepid repo will be different:

Adding a note that Bug 126140 should be resolved by commit a858c06703057cfdd142184e536c3ba36c45000e "ALSA: hda - Add reboot notifier" in this patch set.

After the last kernel upgrade, suspend is broken in my Macbook 1,1, in the sense that it suspends apparently in the right way, but when resuming I only hear the CD-rom searching sound (no video, no audio no anything) and I have to power off brutally.

In the logs the only line that seems related to the issue is this:

Nov 13 12:32:44 kawaii kernel: [ 5463.184694] ACPI: EC: non-query interrupt received, switching to interrupt mode

In particular, this line was present even before the update, but it popped up after resuming, not before suspending.

If you need more logs just ask!


Hi Stefano,

The changes have not yet been packaged and uploaded to intrepid-proposed for testing. The suspend issues you are experiencing after you've updated the kernel are not a result of these specific patches. If you can please open a new bug report I'd be more than happy to work with you there to narrow down the patch which has caused this regression. In the new bug report please specify the kernel version that was working and the kernel version you upgraded to which now has this regression. You can use 'cat /proc/version_signature' to determine the kernel version. Thanks.

I've marked bug 289754 as a duplicate of this master bug since it will be resolved with this set of patches.

Instead of use , current stable should be tested I've tested both and also 2.6.28-rc5 as written in bug 289754.


I've marked bug 126140 as a duplicate of this master SRU bug since it will be resolved with commit a858c06703057cfdd142184e536c3ba36c45000e "ALSA: hda - Add reboot notifier" . bug 126140 had duplicates of it's own (bug 201813, bug 239145, bug 264072) so I've also re-duped those to this bug. Thanks.

Today i have installed 2.6.27-10-generic that solves the issue described in bug 289754 :)

I have also used this kernel for about a week now, without noticeable regressions. Marking this one as verified, we have plenty of other bugs for .y to add more results to.

doesn't apply to jaunty, which already has 2.6.28.
