    Hi Alan,

    It's not fixed in 2.4.18 (released version).

    At least, the array of HPT chipsets doesn't have the 372 entry. Does it

    It doesn't seem to as line 225 in drivers/ide/hpt366.c seems to just use
    class_rev as an index in to the chipset_names array (which will bomb out
    it it tries to access class_rev=5).

    Any chance of getting the earlier patch submitted to the mainstream Kernel
    by someone who Linus will listen to ;-) (P.S. Linus, if you're listening
    sorry for the aspersion that you ignore patches from people, it's just
    that I am a lowly Kernel newbie who you won't know/trust (YET!)).
