Description of problem:
While installing an old CD (Myth II: Soulblighter) the kernel claims:
Feb 13 14:25:31 home01 kernel: hdd: rw=0, want=1287172, limit=1252752
Feb 13 14:25:31 home01 kernel: Buffer I/O error on device hdd, logical block 321792
Feb 13 14:25:31 home01 kernel: attempt to access beyond end of device
Which breaks the installation of the game. The kernel appears to assume a CD size of 1252752 blocks, while on the other hand:
-sh-3.00# cat /proc/ide/hdd/model /proc/ide/hdd/capacity
HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4120B
The same kernel assumes a size of 1302360 blocks.
Years ago (2.4 kernel?) the CD installed w/o any problem, and even nowadays Windows is willing to read the whole CD. I think the CD itself is not the problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load the Myth II CD
2. Do a setup
3. Notice these "attempt to access beyond end of device" messages
