Bad. This would neatly kill my raid 5 setup performance wise. Call this
idea a big step sideways. Doing a ide2=serialize leaves all three disks
running without serialization unless the dvd-rw is used. Just to make it
clear:
ide0 -> onboard, 1 master (disk)
ide1 -> onboard, 1 master (disk)
ide2/3 -> pci, 2 master (disk,dvd-rw)
Your idea would serialize all ide accesses which would slow down all
disks not affected by the problem requiring serialization.
