Description of problem:

- Intermitent problem that occurs for the 3rd time in 2 months. Age of the HW is
about 2 months.
- Workstation suddenly very very slow at giving prompt.
- 2 first occurances of the problem: nothing was found in /var/log/messages
after rebooting.
- At the 3rd occurence, I succeed to open /var/log/messages before rebooting the
system. One line is found:
Aug 15 21:09:12 PCLinux1 kernel: ata1: command 0x35 timeout, stat 0xd0 host_stat 0x1

Do you have more information about the error 0x35 on the ATA controller ? Is it
related to an HW problem ?

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

Linux PCLinux1 2.4.21-40.ELsmp #1 SMP Thu Feb 2 22:13:55 EST 2006 x86_64 x86_64
x86_64 GNU/Linux

How reproducible:

3 times in two months

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use the workstation normally
2. Happens suddently, that the machine is under havy load or not.
Actual results:

Machine becomes very slow at giving prompt. Very hard to log on, even as root.
Launching shutdown even gives "Input/Output error" message back (after 1-2 minutes)

Expected results:
