Parent article: A survey on kernel quality
I started to fill out the forms but soon realised that my type of bugs that really bother me really did not fit into the questions asked.
My problem is that I have since I started to use 2.6 kernels had several hard lockups where the machine just stops working even ping was not reponding on the few times I tried.
Since I'm a software developer myself I know just how impossible it would be to make any progress on that report so I have never done one but this type of hangs did really not happen before.
And yes I have a binary only nvidia blob that is a really good candidate for this type of hard lockup but still it not 100% it's nvidias fault.
