Description Linda Wang 2007-01-18 15:39:07 EST
Description of problem:

This patch "tops off" RHEL4 SATA with the latest bug fixes from

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
The only thing that's not really a bug fix is sata_nv ADMA
support on newer NVIDIA chipsets (but not new new NVIDIA, which are
AHCI).  But even ADMA could be considered a fix of sorts, because it
enables 64-bit DMA and fixes some high-CPU-usage complaints.

This also includes some minor fixes for power management support,
problems that only existed in the RHEL4 backport and not upstream.

Changes from the preliminary patch, posted earlier today, are minor:
cleaned up the diff to remove superfluous changes, and make sure that
diskdump support did not disappear.
