    SubjectRe: Reproducable hard locks in 2.2.17. IDE related
    Hi Alan, 

    > Uncorrectable error is the drive.

    i don't think that we can blame the disks!
    I have 3 different drives, which produce this error after 24 hrs under heavy load.

    I'm very sure, that the whole IDE-stuff is broken under heavy load conditions, but i
    can't find out, what happens exactly in this case.

    > > Sep 21 23:55:44 fs1 kernel: hda: DMA disabled

    Perhaps some timeouts are not set correctly or the specs include some errors, but
    it is very strange behaviour, that with kernel 2.0.36 there was never such a problem
    with heavy loaded systems and after switching to 2.2.16 / 2.2.17 the system dies
    after a short time!!!

    I would like to help if i can, but i'm no kernel developer; all i can do is to provide
    a very heavy loaded machine (video-sequencing) with three different drives.
    I hope they haven't been destroyed by the driver, but i'm sure the drivers behaviour
    let them think they have large amounts of bad blocks.

    BTW: The drives were new! And checked... And ok with 2.0.38!!!!
