Description of problem:
When I reboot my system with all stock FC2 everything my hard drives spin down everytime and I have to wait for them to spin back up before my system can continue. This seems a little silly to say the least. I updated my kernel to 2.6.6 from the fedora rawhide directory as of may 20th and is still does this. I have used 2.6 kernels before and they have not done this on reboot. I suppose it may not be the kernel but it is the only thing I can think of that would control that. I have 2 Hard drives, a 120 maxtor and a 60 IBM deskstar I believe. I have a Soltek motherboard (DRV2) which uses VIA chipsets and I run a athlon 2000+ CPU.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Sit at my system
2.Power on
3.Type reboot in a console ;)

Actual Results:  hard drives spin down, then right back up while the comp stalls on the BIOS screen and waits.	

Expected Results:  A normal reboot

I've noticed the same behaviour. It's annoying because it is
increasing the time in which the computer reboots. I don't know if it
is a kernel problem, or a reboot program problem. Just before the
computer reboots, the following message appears on the screen:
Shutting: hda \n Shutting: hdb.

The system is placing the disks into a safe state for reset/poweroff.
The upstream kernel now has a change that avoids the spindown for the
specific case of reboot, so this should get folded into an errata

Alan, don't you think that this (#123873) is a duplicate of #122966
and not vice versa?
