Then locks hard.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install kernel
2.boot system

Actual Results:  system hard locks

Expected Results:  system boots normally

Additional info:

This is in the middle of the IDE probe.  Out of curiosity, I tried
patching the NForce3 IDE for DMA and ATA133.  We lock basically the
same place with this patch:
NFORCE3: IDE controller at PCI slot 00:08.0
NFORCE3: chipset revision 165
NFORCE3: not 100% native mode: will probe irqs later
AMD_IDE: Bios didn't set cable bits corectly. Enabling workaround.
AMD_IDE: PCI device 10de:00d5 (nVidia Corporation) (rev a5) UDMA133
 controller on pci00:08.0
    ide0: BM-DMA at 0xf000-0xf007, BIOS settings: hda:DMA, hdb:DMA
    ide1: BM-DMA at 0xf008-0xf00f, BIOS settings: hdc:DMA, hdd:DMA

After talking with mkj, recommend patch to add NF3 to ACPI blacklist,
AMD64 patches against FC1 kernel will move back into my priority list
once Test1 is out, and I will send this then.

Comment 2 Justin M. Forbes 2004-02-04 20:14:07 UTC
2163 and later have the disable IO_APIC work around in place for NF3,
and VIA.  acpi=off is no longer required, and no oops on boot.
