Description of problem:
The HP rx2600/rx5670 panics when doing continuous IO on the ATAboy2s. I have a
panic screen-dump and an attempt at running ksymoops on it.
The simplest way to provoke the panic, is simply to try creating a 800GB
partition using the GNU parted partition program (as is recommended on ia64).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
linux-2.4.18-e.12smp -> linux-2.4.18-e.37smp
Steps to Reproduce:
3.mkpartfs primary ext2 282101 1132100
1. iozone -r 64 -s 10g
Actual Results: scenario 1: The machine panics after appr. 5 minutes.
scenario 2: The machine hangs after appr. 10 minutes.
Expected Results: scenario 1: The partition should have been created.
scenario 2: iozone should have printed the rest of the performance results and
I get the following messages when creating partitions in a GPT partition table:
Alternate GPT is invalid, using primary GPT.
Error: Invalid argument during read on /dev/sdb
These messages does not appear if I use a different label type (f.i:
"bsd","loop", "mac", "msdos", "pc98" or "sun")
I dont think we have the hardware to test this. I'm closing this bug just
because its so old, please reopen it if its still a problem.
