Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 118185
(SATA VIA)Kernel attempts to page during loading of sata_via module but can't.

Description of problem:
At some point during the loading of the sata_via module the kernel
attempts handle a paging request but can't. I assume this is because
the swapfile is on the SATA drive but I haven't changed my FSTAB to
exclude that swapfile. Either way it prevents me from running a system
off the SATA drive alone.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install to a SATA drive on a Via Chipset Board.
2. Reboot after the install.
Kernel Panic during the loading of the sata_via module because the
kernel is quote:

Module loads fine like it did on the install.
I will attempt to turn off the swap on the sata to see if this is a
I tried moving swap despite realizing that it hasn't turned swap on
yet so of course it isn't paging to swap.
The page fault is because of an invalid access of some kind. What is
really needed is the call trace.
