[Bug 979253] Re: BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at c00fdd20


major misunderstanding, as per
http://support.ts.fujitsu.com/Download/Index.asp an update is available
for your BIOS (B0G). If you update to this following
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BiosUpdate , does it change anything?

If not, could you please both specify what happened, and provide the output of the following terminal command:
sudo dmidecode -s bios-version && sudo dmidecode -s bios-release-date

Please note your current BIOS is already in the Bug Description, so
posting this on the old BIOS would not be helpful.

For more on BIOS updates and linux, please see

Thank you for your understanding.

Bug description:
  Fujitsu Siemens Amilo M 7400 and Maxdata 7000DX wireless RF kill handling triggers a kernel panic preventing wireless from operating correctly.  This may be worked around by editing your kernel command line and adding "noexec=off".  (Bug:979253)

  Original bug report:
  I used to be able to turn on my Intel wireless adaptor by typing sudo modprobe fsam7400 radio=1 into a terminal, but since upgrading my operating system to Ubuntu 12.04 this no longer works.

  If you could send me a new code, preferably one that could turn
  wireless on permanantly, I would be very grateful.

  Release Notes:
  The fsam7400 driver directly invokes BIOS code to turn on/off the RF switch in this platform.  However, the memory pages where this BIOS code is mapped is marked as non-executable and this is what causes the issue.

  As a temporary workaround, it is possible to boot the kernel with 'noexec=off' parameters.  Details on how to modify kernel parameters can be obtained in section "Temporarily Add a Kernel Boot Parameter for Testing" in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/KernelBootParameters.
