Description of problem:
During shutdown, the system panics after the pcmcia script unloads the aic7xxx
module. The aic7xxx module is driving a pcmcia scsi card, and there are mounted
file systems on a external hard drive attached to that card.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
prereq: pcmcia scsi interface card, external scsi drives with usable file system.
1.mount a file system from external scsi hard drive attached to pcmcia scsi card.
2.execute "shutdown -hy now"
3.pcmcia script unloads pcmcia scsi module with file systems still mounted
4.system on fire! (kidding, system panics and hangs)
Actual Results: panic/hang with root and other file systems still mounted.
Expected Results: file systems on external device should be unmounted before
the driver is unloaded.
Manually umount'ing the file systems on the external scsi drive before running
shutdown allows the system to shutdown normally.
ok this is indeed rather unfunny. investigating.
quick question: is it pcmcia or cardbus ?
The Adaptec product is labeled "CardBus" on the front
