Summary: Broadcom network card on E1405 laptop does not work
under Xen kernel 2.6.18.1-7-xen
Product: openSUSE 10.2
Version: Beta 1
Platform: x86-64
OS/Version: SuSE Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Major
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Xen
AssignedTo: cgriffin@xxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: jbarton@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I have a Dell E1405 laptop with 10.2 beta 1 x86_64 installed. The network card
is a Broadcom BCM4401-B0 100Base-TX. The card works fine under 10.1, here is my
lspci output in 10.1:

02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4401-B0 100Base-TX (rev
02)
Subsystem: Dell Unknown device 01d8
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 64, IRQ 177
Memory at df9fe000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K]
Capabilities: [40] Power Management version 2

When I boot the 10.2 beta 1 Xen kernel, the network card fails to start. Here
is what is logged during system boot:

Here is the lspci output while in 10.2 beta 1, which seems to be different:

02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4401-B0 100Base-TX (rev
02)
Subsystem: Dell Unknown device 01d8
Flags: fast devsel, IRQ 17
Memory at df9fe000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [disabled] [size=8K]
Capabilities: [40] Power Management version 2

Also, I tried to remove the b44 module that was loaded, and then re-ran
modprobe b44, but this caused the laptop to lock-up immediately, and it had to
be power-cycled.

The laptop is a Dell e1405 with a core 2 duo processor.
