    Yes, it's known problem. Recent 2.4 kernels shutdown the IDE disks
    on halt/poweroff, which is extremely annoying on alpha when you return
    to SRM prompt to boot another kernel. You'll have to wait until
    the disk spins up again.

    Send me please "lspci -vxxx -s 0:d" outputs for
    - old (working) kernel;
    - new kernel before and after "hdparm -d1".
