Description of problem:
There is a kernel bug up to kernel 2.6.18 (still) where the ALI5229 controllers
of different revisions are setup incorrectly. I found the change to make to fix
it at http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5786. Patch attached. I am in
the process of recompiling the most current kernel with this patch to see if it
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Core 5 on machine with
00:1f.0 IDE interface: ALi Corporation M5229 IDE (rev c8)
2. attempt to burn CD (not dvd for some reason, growisofs seems to work)
IDE Bus is hung
hda: Lost interrupt
successfully able to burn cd
Created attachment 137720 [details]
patch against kernel-2.6.17-1.2187_FC5 that fixes the problem
Just a confirmation, that after adding the previously attached patch to the
.spec for 2.6.17-1.2187_FC5, rebuilding, rebooting. Fixes the issue. Also, the
bug is fixed in 2.6.18.

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
