Kernel 2.6.19 hardlock on boot with adaptec i2o driver. ( SmartRAID V IDE controller )
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:57 EST
Description of problem:
With all 2.6.19 kernels for FC6 the system wont boot. Just tested
2.6.19-1.2911.fc6 and the same result was seen. The system panics while booting
. I can not produce logs as there is no serial port on the system. But when
systems tries to resume from /dev/i2o/hda1 ( swap partition ) kernel reports
I/O error on device i2o/hda.
The system works ok with other kernels aka. 2.6.18 series and it is running
latest 2.6.18 series ( 2.6.18-1.2869.fc6 ) just now.
It seems to me that the i2o driver is broken on 2.6.19 !
dmesg from the working 2.6.18 is as follows:
I2O subsystem v1.325
i2o: max drivers = 8

i2o/hda: i2o/hda1 i2o/hda2 i2o/hda3 i2o/hda4
block-osm: device added (TID: 207): i2o/hda
I did check that the initrd has the right modules but the system does not
boot as it can not read i2o/hda with 2.6.19 kernel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
all 2.6.19 update kernels for fc6 that I tested.
boot the 2.6.19 kernel
