Description of problem:
After installing the kernel-2.6.14-1.1637_FC4 the kernel doesn't find the PATA
promise controller. The kernel-2.6.13-1.1532_FC4, kernel-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 and
older work fine.

You can found a similar problem under the
The dmesg in the 2.6.14 doesn't show any PATA Promise controller but only the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot under the kernel-2.6.14-1.1637_FC4
2. dmesg to find the devices (ONLY SATA)
Actual Results: I couldn't use my lvm volume since it uses the disks under the PATA Promise
Expected Results: Detect the PATA controller just as the older kernels.

I tried both options:
to the grub entry. It returned "ignoring unknow option libata.atapi_enabled=1"
options libata atapi_enabled=1
And no one worked
ATAPI has nothing to do with PATA support, so thats not expected to work.
This happened to work in earlier kernels, because we carried a patch that got
dropped as bits of it were merged upstream. Not all of it made it it seems.
Same problem in 2.6.14-1.1644_FC4. I still can't use my disk connected to
promise ATA controller.
This is a mass-update to all currently open kernel bugs.
A new kernel update has been released (Version: 2.6.15-1.1830_FC4)
based upon a new upstream kernel release.
Please retest against this new kernel, as a large number of patches
go into each upstream release, possibly including changes that
may address this problem.
