Description of problem:
there is a condition of error with a controller managed by the kernel
driver sata_sil.c and the model of sata disk ST3120026AS.
the controller model is "Adaptec AAR-1210SA".
The bug is known in many previous release of the kernel driver (I
refer to the latest or 0.54) in kernel 2.6.6.
at boot and during normal access operation the disk is not accessible,
or is accesible after delays that last minutes, and after the delays
the read/write fails with error "lost interrupt" (more accurate trace
and dmesg will follow).
in the source code there is a workaround for disk drives of the same
manifacturer (seagate) with similar names and type. but not the one I
refer to (ST3120026AS).
obviously I have tried to modify the source including that model in
the workaround routine, but without success. [workaround is called

i have installed windows xp and it works fine. so it is not some

Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat. The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.
If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
