Description of problem:
When rebooting, the kernel is powering off IDE harddisks just before
rebooting instead of just flushing the cache.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. reboot the system
2. harddisk are powered down just before reset
3. harddisk are spun up again by the bios
Actual Results: Harddisks are spun down and up again
Expected Results: Just flushing the caches
I'm seeing this too. It started with the last two released FC2
kernels. A shutdown would be fine of the system was being shutdown,
but not for a reset.
Also, only my ATA100 attached drive spins down, the SATA drive stays
running. Could be an AT_PIIX driver specific issue.
WFM in newer kernels.
Seems fixed in current rawhide.
