Description Xin-Yun Liu (Wolke Liu) 2007-02-02 02:45:47 EST
we set udma mode for 40pin in original code. It's dangerous. 
Now we add code to choose correct dma mode for PATA.
Patch ready and tested.

sb600_ide_udma_mode.patch is the root cause for this bug.

sb600_ide_one_channel.patch is to clean up the code for SB600 IDE controller

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.9-42

How reproducible:
Always

Use IDE harddisk with 40-pin cable. Install OS onto it or just use it as data 
disk.

Actual Results:
1. data on IDE disk will be lost when connected with 40-pin cable


Expected Results:
when connected to 40-pin cable, it should not use udma mode

Comment 2 Alan Cox 2007-02-02 04:07:53 EST
I am unable to duplicate case #1. The disk subsystem reports some errors caused
by CRC failure and then changes down to UDMA33. This in turn only occurs if the
drive side detect is also wrong. Also does not appear to correct handle
suspend/resume which is probably not a concern for 4.x but may be for 5
