Description of problem:
The power down sequence seems to turn off my hard disks before it has completed
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always (Always during shutdown. I haven't tried re-installing my system.)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Installed Limbo2 with a multi-disk, RAID0 root file system (hda5 & hdb3).
2. shutdown -h now
Actual Results: Messages appearing at the end of the power down sequence
(entered here by hand):
md: stopping all md devices.
md: marking sb clean...
md: updating md0 RAID superblock on device
md: hda5 [events: 0000001e]<6>(write) hda5's sb offset: 6217024
md: hdb3 [events: 0000001e]<6>(write) hdb3's sb offset: 239488
md: md0 switched to read-only mode.
flushing ide devices: hda hdb hdb: lost interrupt
The line beginning "flushing ide devices" is actually two messages. I can hear
the hard disks turn off after the first "hdb". The "hdb: lost interrupt"
message appears after a little wait.
Expected Results: I don't expect the "hdb: lost interrupt" message to appear.
In case this is hardware related, this machine is a Pentium 75 with a manual
This power-down activity doesn't seem to be corrupting my file system, so I
don't know how important it is to fix this bug.
