ide driver printk's without log level.
Last modified: 2006-03-10 22:18:29 EST
Description of problem:
There is a printk without a log level in the ide-floppy driver that causes un-
necessary console messages. Should be KERN_INFO? It causes extra messages at
the login prompt on a text console.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel version 2.4.20-2.48 and others.
Steps to Reproduce:
Displays messages at the login prompt:
Localhost Login: Ide-floppy driver 0.99 newide
hda :ATAPI 24X DVD-ROM drive,128kb Cache
You can find the first printk in ide-floppy.c at line 2198:
printk("ide-floppy driver " IDEFLOPPY_VERSION "\n");
You can find the second printk in ide-cd.c at line 2834:
printk(" %s: ATAPI", drive->name);
Please change to appropriate log level (KERN_INFO?) so it won't confuse
ISSUE TRACKER 16717 opened by Dell as sev 4.
I agree, fixed in base IDE code. Up to Brian/Arjan to pick it up for product
Is this still a problem in latest Shrike kernel-2.4.20-18.9 errata?
I verified that both of these are fixed with KERN_INFO in 2.4.20-18.9 and
Taroon. Please close.
