Subjecthdparm -Y /dev/hd? lock my harddisk
Jocking with hdparm I tried `hdparm -Y /dev/hda`, I seen "sending sleep
command" or something similar. After some seconds with the HD led ON I was
again on the shell with the HD led OFF, I typed `ls` and the HD locked
with the HD led ON.

I can reproduce this lock with any kind of setting in the BIOS (UDMA
disabled or enabled).

Kernel is 2.1.105 (I haven' tried other kernel).

PIIX4: IDE controller on PCI bus 00 dev 09
PIIX4: not 100% native mode: will probe irqs later
ide0: BM-DMA at 0xe000-0xe007, BIOS settings: hda:pio, hdb:pio
ide1: BM-DMA at 0xe008-0xe00f, BIOS settings: hdc:pio, hdd:pio
hdc: HITACHI CDR-8130, ATAPI CDROM drive
ide0 at 0x1f0-0x1f7,0x3f6 on irq 14
ide1 at 0x170-0x177,0x376 on irq 15
hda: QUANTUM FIREBALL ST3.2A, 3079MB w/81kB Cache, CHS=782/128/63, UDMA
eth0: 3c509 at 0x300 tag 1, BNC port, address 00 60 08 8e 7f 2c, IRQ 10.
3c509.c:1.12 6/4/97
Partition check:
hda: hda1 hda2 hda3 hda4

This problem doesn' t harm me at all though, since I never got one problem
with an IDE disk/cdrom so far and I never need to put my HD to sleep ;-).
If for the most of people hdparm -Y works, probably is my HD or my IDE
chipset that make mess with the sleep command...
