Description Bruno Wolff III 2007-07-21 15:31:23 UTC
Description of problem: The latest kernel (kernel-126.96.36.199-27.fc7) will no longer complete booting. I get a message that no devices were found for a couple of raid devices (root and swap) and this causes the root pivot fail and the kernel panics shortly afterward. This is similar to problems I was experiencing during f7 rawhide testing as documented in bug 227281. The previous kernel (kernel-2.6.21-1.3228.fc7) works just fine on this system. I have kernel-188.8.131.52-27.fc7 installed on another machine with software raid devices and I didn't have a problem there when rebooting after the kernel upgrade. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): kernel-184.108.40.206-27.fc7 How reproducible: 100% Steps to Reproduce: 1. reboot and select the 220.127.116.11-27.fc7 kernel to boot. 2. 3. Actual results: Boot fails after some raid device members aren't found and the root pivot fails. Expected results: Successful boot. Additional info: If you want lspci info and the like, you can get it from 227281.

From Daniel Duggan's report (Bug 249166): 2.6.22: hpt37x: DPLL did not stabilize. 2.6.21: pata_hpt37x: BIOS has not set timing clocks. hpt37x: HPT372: Bus clock 33MHz. Bruno, does this match what happens on your systems?
Comment 4 Bruno Wolff III 2007-07-24 15:03:18 UTC
No it doesn't. Under 2.6.22 I seem the same message. (It isn't in my logs, but the messages paused long enough that I am pretty sure it was the same message. Under 2.6.21 I get: Jul 24 09:55:30 bruno kernel: pata_hpt37x: BIOS has not set timing clocks. Jul 24 09:55:30 bruno kernel: hpt37x: HPT302: Bus clock 33MHz.

Patch in CVS.
Comment 6 Bruno Wolff III 2007-07-27 14:44:57 UTC
Unless a test kernel rpm shows up this afternoon, I won't get to test the fix until I get back from vacation. (Even it is does, I still might not have time before I leave.) So if you ask me to do a test, don't be surprised if I don't provide any feedback until about the 9th or 10th of August.
Comment 7 Bruno Wolff III 2007-08-10 15:12:58 UTC
The 18.104.22.168-41.fc7 boots for me, so the fix appears to solve my problem.
