Description Bernhard Ege 2000-08-07 08:59:50 EDT
I noticed that the AMD 7409 chipset wasn't supported in the 2.2.16-17
kernel. As a user (and probably not the only one), I would like to see that
support. All it requires, is basically to apply a patch found here:


The patch is called ide.2.2.16.all.20000805.patch.bz2 and would be more or
less easy to apply. It enables DMA support for the AMD7409 chipset, which
boosts performance quite a bit.

The patch is not stable enough for us to use yet. We expect it to be stable
enoughfor the next
release. In the mean time glad the patch helps you
