    Subject2.5.1-pre2 bio offset by one error in VIA IDE
    Jens,

    I just booted my Athlon VIA KT133 chipset box with 2.5.1-pre2 only to
    discover it dropped me into single user mode because /dev/hda2 could not be
    mounted. (Rebooting into 2.5.0+viro patch everything is ok, back into
    2.5.1-pre2 is broken...)

    Looking with hexedit /dev/hda2 when booted into 2.5.1-pre2 the first sector
    contains junk, the second sector contains the real data that I see as the
    first sector when booted into 2.5.0+viro fix.

    That suggests to me there is an off by one error in the VIA IDE driver in
    the 2.5.10pre2 kernel causing the partition to start one sector earlier
    than it should.

    If you would like any further information / patch testing / whatever let me
    know.

    Best regards,

    Anton
