Bug Description

Binary package hint: linux-image

A buffer overflow in the kernel prevents Sigmatel IrDA devices from loading their firmware and makes them therefore unusable.

Fix:

Hi Thomas,

Thanks for the upstream git commit id, much appreciated. I'm sure this could be cherrypicked prior to Jaunty's final release. I'll ping the kernel team. Thanks.

For Intrepid this was part of the 2.6.27.13 stable integration which should be released with -12.28.
For Jaunty it was included in the 2.6.28.2 stable updates which have been released in -6.16.

Marking this Fix Released for Jaunty as the patches are already available in the latest 2.6.28-11.42 kernel.
