The 2.6.21 kernel on fedora 7 hangs for ~5 seconds while loading the pata_sis
module. Besides that initial hang the system seems to work OK after that.
I'll attach the dmesg output. The hang is on the line:
scsi0 : pata_sis
Please ask any other info that might be needed.

Actually, I was mistaken, it hangs a little bit further on the line:
scsi1 : pata_sis
So, it's after detecting the hard disk interface, on the cdrom interface.
I won't be of further help to fix this, sorry. This particular machine got
trashed a while ago and I don't intend to buy sis hardware ever again.
