First off, thanks to Matt for publishing that document which clears up some
of the hearsay we've had on this list about the issue.


A questions though:  from that document, "A new kernel command line
parameter, pci=bfsort forces breadth-first device sorting on any system, and
pci=nobfsort disables breadth-first device sorting on any system. This same
fix is included in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 5 kernel."

Is that a typo, or is Update 5 just not available to the general public as
an ISO yet?

Thanks,

Andrew
