Description Stuart Hayes 2004-11-29 11:37:49 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; .NET 
CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
After booting a Dell PE2650 into RHEL4 beta 2, dmesg has the 
following messages:

"ide1: Wait for ready failed before probe "

System configuration:

System : PE2650 
BIOS : A20
H/W config : 2* 2.4 Ghz /12GB 
memory /PERC3Di/PERC4DC/Intel1000MT/2*BCM570X/AIC-39160

Comments (from Amit Bhutani):

Looks like this got introduced in the 2.6.9 kernel.

This is what the IDE maintainer (Bartlomiej Zolnierkiewicz) had to 
say about it --> 

Looks like someone needs to write a patch as Bartlomiej indicated to 
replace the printks with pr_debugs and submit the patch to 
kernel.org. This may already be done. Just need to verify. Absolutely 
need to open a Bugzilla against Red Hat to ensure that patch gets 
included in RHEL 4 RC.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot up system
2. look at dmesg

Actual Results:  error message above is in log

Expected Results:  no errors in log

These are debug level messages not errors. They were switched to pr_debug in
2.6.10rc once we were happy with testing the changes.
Comment 2 Stuart Hayes 2004-11-29 16:17:12 EST
I just found that out when I tried to reproduce this myself.

Verified fixed in 860 build. Thanks. Closing.
