Description Robert Hentosh 2003-02-28 19:58:34 UTC
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.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
Displays messages at the login prompt:
       Localhost Login: Ide-floppy driver 0.99 newide
       hda :ATAPI 24X DVD-ROM drive,128kb Cache

Expected results:

Additional info:
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.

Comment 2 Alan Cox 2003-03-11 23:46:51 UTC
I agree, fixed in base IDE code. Up to Brian/Arjan to pick it up for product

Comment 3 Larry Troan 2003-07-01 01:28:08 UTC
Is this still a problem in latest Shrike kernel-2.4.20-18.9 errata?

Comment 4 Robert Hentosh 2003-07-01 15:48:04 UTC
I verified that both of these are fixed with KERN_INFO in 2.4.20-18.9 and 
Taroon.  Please close.
