    Subjectsiimage driver status
    Hello all,
    I have an Asus A7V8X Deluxe motherboard with a couple of WD Raptor
    hard drives that I'm trying to get to work with linux 2.4.21-rc6. The
    problem I'm having is that it's REALLY slow and crashy. The kernel reports
    this on bootup:

    Uniform Multi-Platform E-IDE driver Revision: 7.00beta4-2.4
    ide: Assuming 33MHz system bus speed for PIO modes; override with
    idebus=xx
    NFORCE2: IDE controller at PCI slot 00:09.0
    NFORCE2: chipset revision 162
    NFORCE2: not 100% native mode: will probe irqs later
    AMD_IDE: Bios didn't set cable bits corectly. Enabling workaround.

    hdd: attached ide-scsi driver.
    Partition check:
    hda: hda1 hda2 hda3
    hde: unknown partition table
    hdg: unknown partition table

    The nforce2 ide controller works great, as does the drive on it. When I
    try to use either of the drives on the siimage controller, it brings
    everything else on my system to a temporary halt, and hdparm -t reports
    about 1.3MB/sec reads. This is a bummer, as I was hoping to RAID 0 them
    together and make them my boot drives :)

    If I try and enable DMA, the machine instantly hardlocks.

    I'm running debian sarge, if it matters.

    Is there anything I should try, or is the siimage driver just still very
    early on in its development? I would be more than happy to beta- (or
    alpha) test code, or give developers access to my box if testbed platforms
    are needed. Whatever I can do to make it work :)

    Thanks very much in advance
