Description of problem:
I don't know, if it is a bug or it is my fault.
I disable my harddisk (in my case /dev/hda) of with hdparm, because I
really don't need it under Linux-System. On this harddisk is only
Windows-Partitions. MBR is stored in sda (SCSI-Harddisk, which I
boot). If I shutdown/reboot the System, I always get a Error, and my
Harddisk spin up. After spinup all Harddisk turned off (<-That is ok)
and PC shut down/restart.
In /etc/fstab is nothing about hda.
In /etc/smartd.conf I already removed the hda line.

I think, it would be great, if there is a bootparameter, which turns
of some (depend on bootparameter) harddisk and Linux will leave this
unused harddisk really alone.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. "hdparm -d0 /dev/hda"
2. "hdparm -Y /dev/hda"
3a. "shutdown -h now"
3b. Press Power-Off-Button (I'm using ACPI) to shutdown PC.
3c. "reboot"
3d. Press <ctrl>+<alt>+<del> to reboot.

Actual Results:  I receive following lines at the end of Shutdown:
hda: irq timeout: status=0xd0 {Busy}
ide0: reset: success

This reset result a spinup of my Harddisk (hda). This is nonsense,
because after that all Harddisk will be turned off before system

Expected Results:  Leave the disabled harddisk alone (keep it off), if
there is really nothing to store/flush before turning harddisk off.

Comment 1 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 00:50:49 EDT
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
product version accordingly.

Thank you.
