Description of problem:
In the 2.4.18-5 kernel, installed after running "up2date" recently, the aha152x
scsi module no longer enables my pcmcia scsi card to be recognized.  The card
*does* work with the 2.4.18-4 kernel.  The exact output from dmesg with the
2.4.18-5 kernel is: aha152x: processing commandline: ok
aha152x: BIOS test: passed, detected 1 controller(s)
aha152x: resetting bus...
aha152x1: vital data: rev=1, io=0x340 (0x340/0x340), irq=5, scsiid=7,
reconnect=enabled, parity=enabled, synchronous=disabled, delay=100, extended
translation=disabled
aha152x1: trying software interrupt, lost.
aha152x1: IRQ 5 possibly wrong.  Please verify.
aha152x_cs: no SCSI devices found
Trying to free nonexistent resource <00000340-0000035f>
--------------------------------------------------------------

Here is what happens under the 2.4.18-4 kernel, where it does work:

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert pcmcia scsi card into slot, attach to jaz drive
2. Boot up with the 2.4.18-5 kernel
3.
	

Actual Results:  Output from dmesg:

aha152x: processing commandline: ok

aha152x1: IRQ 5 possibly wrong.  Please verify.
aha152x_cs: no SCSI devices found
Trying to free nonexistent resource <00000340-0000035f>

After this, any devices hooked up to scsi card are inaccessible.


Expected Results:  Here is what happens under 2.4.18-4 kernel, where it works:

aha152x: processing commandline: ok
aha152x: BIOS test: passed, detected 1 controller(s)
aha152x: resetting bus...

Comment 1 Carlos Rodrigues 2002-06-21 19:59:02 EDT
I have a ISA scsi card suported by the aha152x driver and I find it is also 
broken on 2.4.18-5 although it worked perfectly fine with 2.4.18-4. I even 
tried changing the irq and io settings on the card. 
 
Output from dmesg is similar to the above and it is: 
 
aha152x: BIOS test: passed, detected 1 controller(s) 
aha152x: resetting bus... 
aha152x0: vital data: rev=1, io=0x140 (0x140/0x140), irq=11, scsiid=7,

translation=disabled 
aha152x0: trying software interrupt, lost. 
aha152x0: IRQ 11 possibly wrong.  Please verify.

Comment 2 Carlos Rodrigues 2002-06-21 20:01:13 EDT
The output is posted twice above... my mistake.
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2002-06-22 10:51:36 EDT
I think I found the cause, could you guys try the 2.4.18-5a kernel from

http://people.redhat.com/arjanv/testkernels

?
Comment 4 George H. Fisher 2002-06-23 23:36:33 EDT
Hi Arjan,

I just tried the new kernel, and now the aha152x driver seems to work fine.  I
hooked up my pcmcia scsi card (labeled as a "jaz" card) up to my hp m820e cd
burner and burned a cd.  It worked fine, at least for my setup.  Thanks for your
help!

Best, - George

Comment 6 Carlos Rodrigues 2002-06-25 11:04:09 EDT
2.4.18-5a works fine for me also.
Comment 7 Need Real Name 2002-07-16 23:58:52 EDT
I also could not use the aha152x module with 2.4.18-5.  It worked
fine with 2.4.18-3.  2.4.18-5a no longer existed in the testkernel
directory.  I downloaded 2.4.18-5e instead (no other choice) for i686.
The module now loads properly.
Comment 8 oliver 2002-08-06 14:37:44 EDT
I still have problems using an Adaptec AVA-1505 card with the latest
test kernel (with scanner Scanmaker e3 plus attached):

Comment 9 oliver 2002-08-12 02:49:58 EDT
The problem described in my previous comment is resolved, and not kernel related:
The 2.4.18 kernel permutes the numbering of scsi devices, so that /dev/scanner
was suddenly pointing to the CD writer.  

After fixing this, 2.4.18-7 works fine for me.
Comment 10 Broderick Wood 2002-08-15 02:11:47 EDT
I am running a desktop with an older (non-pci) Adaptec SCSI card that uses the
AHA152x driver which immediately failed with the 2.4.18-5 kernel update, but the
suggested 2.4.18-7 update installed and it seems fine now.
Comment 11 Carlos Rodrigues 2002-10-07 20:39:58 EDT
The problem is back in redhat 8.0
Comment 12 Need Real Name 2002-10-17 16:47:45 EDT
I have an Adaptec 1460 PCMCIA SCSI card that I'm using with RedHat 8.0
(2.4.18-14 kernel).  I see the same problem ("trying software interrupt, lost.")
when I insert the card.  Using Google, I was able to find some information about
this problem at http://www.uwsg.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0207.2/0209.html.
 I modified aha152x.c as suggested in the post and rebuilt the kernel.  I am now
able to use my SCSI card.

I previously used this card under RedHat 7.1 and RedHat 7.2 without any problems.
Comment 13 Carlos Rodrigues 2002-10-17 18:06:35 EDT
The problem is fixed in the errata kernel 2.4.18-17.8.0.
