Hi *,

since the last stable kernel update in Fedora 12, a lot of Dell machines 
do not boot anymore due to a kernel oops... Of course bugzilla has a 
couple of bug reports (e.g. #578217, #579118, #578663, #578590).

There is a known fix/workaround which is already present in CVS 
(kernel- and a koji build which fixes the issue for 
all users. However there's no update in bodhi yet.

Due to the severity of the problem, I'd like to see a push to 
updates-testing as soon as possible.
