SubjectHardlocks with 2.4.21-pre5, pdc202xx_new (PDC20269) and shared IRQs
Hi,

I am experiencing system hardlocks under the following conditions:
- Hardware:
- Tyan Thunder K7 w/ 2x Athlon MP 1.2GHz (5x PCI)
- 2x Onboard Adaptec 7899P SCSI adapter
IRQ 16, IRQ 17
- 2x Onboard 3Com 3C982 100Mb 32bit PCI NIC
IRQ 18, IRC 19
- 1x National Semiconductor DP83820 1000Mb 64bit PCI NIC
IRQ 16
- 2x Promise Ultra 133TX2 PDC20269
IRQ 16, IRQ 17
- Software:
- Linux 2.4.21-pre5:
CONFIG_IDE=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDEDISK=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDEPCI=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_GENERIC=y
CONFIG_IDEPCI_SHARE_IRQ=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDEDMA_PCI=y
CONFIG_IDEDMA_PCI_AUTO=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDEDMA=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_ADMA=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_PDC202XX_NEW=y
CONFIG_IDEPCI_SHARE_IRQ=y
CONFIG_IDEDMA_IVB=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_PDC202XX=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDE_MODES=y

When one of the Promise controllers is sharing the same IRQ with one of
the NICs (don't matter which, I tried all) and data is copied *to* the
machine over the network, the system deadlocks. When data is copied
*from* the system over the network, it works all ok. Unfortunately the
system BIOS doesn't give me any possibility of setting the IRQ
channels by hand, so all I can do is put the cards into other slots.

Ah, at boot time the kernel spits out this message:
--8<--
I/O APIC: AMD Errata #22 may be present. In the event of instability try
: booting with the "noapic" option.
--8<--
I've not yet tried that, but will do now.
