Description Dave Jones 2003-10-03 13:08:48 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030908

Description of problem:
Radeon IGP chipsets are having machine check exceptions happen
as soon as PCMCIA starts up. The reason for this is that its poking
the reserved areas (0x380-0x3ff) even though it shouldn't be, and is marked
clearly in the config.

Changing the include line from..
include port 0x100-0x4ff, port 0xc00-0xcff
include port 0x100-0x379, port 0x400-0x4ff, port 0xc00-0xcff

(Ie, doing the exclude by hand) confirms that this is the problem.

Additionally, the range is too wide. It should exclude 0x3b0 -> 0x3bb
and 0x3b3->0x3b3.  This aparently is the reason why we are having problems with
Sony VAIO laptops & their CD drives.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot on RadeonIGP system
2. Start PCMCIA

Actual Results:  Fatal MCE

Expected Results:  Boots correctly.

<davej> should be 3d3

(not 3b3)
Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 2003-10-21 16:28:57 EDT
Dave, do we need to build a new kernel-pcmcia-cs?
Comment 3 Dave Jones 2003-10-21 16:58:58 EDT
I think Bill already did, though I've not confirmed this since.
I'll look into it.
Comment 4 Chris Ricker 2003-10-21 18:34:48 EDT
Bug #104320 also says that a kernel-pcmcia-cs update will fix the bug, but there
hasn't been any update....
Comment 5 Dave Jones 2003-10-28 12:05:23 EST
Confirmed, the exclude list is now being honoured with the default config
with the current pcmcia-cs package.
No more MCEs...
Comment 6 Chris Ricker 2003-10-30 01:26:22 EST
I still hang if the internal NIC is plugged in at boot-up, which Bug #104320
says is fixed by this exclude list


reopen? something else?
Comment 7 Dave Jones 2003-11-20 14:23:25 EST
likely something else.
