Description Chris Lalancette 2005-10-31 10:56:16 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc3 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
After installing the kernel 2.6.13-1.1532_FC4 rpm and rebooting, the kernel fails to successfully start the MPT Fusion driver (both UP and SMP).  The kernel starts, loads the MPT Fusion driver (I verified that it was in the initrd), but then fails to find any drives attached (which, in turn, causes it to fail to find / and fail switchroot).  This works fine in 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.  I also heard from a co-worker (though I did not confirm) that this was a problem with the previous 2.6.13 kernel as well.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install machine with FC4
2.  yum update to get the latest kernel version (2.6.13-1.1532_FC4)
3.  Reboot to the new kernel

Actual Results:  MPT Fusion driver did not find any disks attached.  Kernel boot failed with:

mkrootdev: label /1 not found
mount: error 2 mounting ext3
Switching to new root
ERROR opening /dev/console!!!!: 2
error dup2'ing fd of 0 to 0
error dup2'ing fd of 0 to 1
error dup2'ing fd of 0 to 2
unmounting old /proc
unmounting old /sys
switchroot: mount failed: 22
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

Expected Results:  MPT Fusion driver should find attached SCSI disks, and successfully switchroot to / partition.
