Description of problem:
Upgrade from 2.4.2-2 kernel to 2.4.3-12 kernel. Running on a IBM netfinity 
7000 quad processor host with 1024 MB of memory. I have 2 Qlogic 2200 and 
an Intel ethernet pro100 nic card in the pci slots. After upgrading 
successfully rebooting the host modules for those cards would not load, 
saying that there are no devices available. I have an adaptec scsi host 
adapter and that loads fine with the aic7xxx module. 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Load kernel 2.4.3-12
2.Create new ramdisk and edit lilo.conf to load new kernel
3.Reboot the host

Actual Results:  All pci devices are no longer accessible.

Expected Results:  They should still be accessible.

I assume you reran lilo (no kidding, some people forget that)

Comment 2 Arthur Tan 2001-08-03 16:01:15 UTC
yup ! I created a new ramdisk and ran lilo after making all the necessary 
changes in lilo.conf.

Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2001-08-03 16:22:28 UTC
Ok I've to admit this puzzles me. I don't think the PCI code changed
THAT much between 2.4.2-2 and 2.4.3-12....

Comment 4 Arthur Tan 2001-08-03 18:30:44 UTC
I have other smp host that was upgraded to the 2.4.3-12smp kernel with the same 
set of pci devices and they are running fine. The host are Dell PowerEdge 2400.

Also see Bug #50856

Comment 6 Michael K. Johnson 2001-08-23 18:20:12 UTC
We believe this will be fixed in the next rawhide kernel, 2.4.7-2.8 or
later.  If so, the bug was caused by a fix for another machine with the
450NX chipset...
