Description of problem:
SATA failure. Sis 180 interface hangs on boot
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernels 2.6.8-1.521, 2.6.7-1.494.2.2
Using kernels 2.6.8-1.521, 2.6.7-1.494.2.2 under FC2 will result in
boot failure for sata interface SiS 180 (even if the disk is not a
boot one). Hangs forever with the following message:
sdb:<3> ata2: command 0x25 timeout stat 0x50 host_stat 0x64.
The sata disk is correctly recognised.
While kernel 2.6.6-1.435.2.3 works flawlessly
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot with either kernel 2.6.8-1.521, 2.6.7-1.494.2.2
2. Wait until sata disk is recognised
3. Kernel hangs forever
The box cannot be booted, no matter which bios setting one choses.
Computer should boot.
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.
