That is exactly what I needed.  Patch 34113 worked like a charm.

Thanks for the help!


Here ya go Jonathan,

Both patches work for my situation, but I went with the second set as a final patch(34113).

I am using a 405EX CPU on a custom board.  The layout and hardware is very similar to the AMCC Kilauea board.  Here is the output of uname -a:

I am getting the following BUG output when my program exits:

I have an FPGA on the PCIe bus that I am mapping BAR0 to user space with a call to mmap().  The mapping works just fine and I can access all the registers in the BAR without a problem.  However, on exit this comes up.

A Google search showed tons of people with similar problems in standard distributions (Ubuntu primarily), but no resolutions.

Has anyone seen this crop up before and know what the issue is?  I include any source code, if that is required.
