    SubjectIDE CDROM failure with 2.1.125: lost interrupt
    Hi all! 

    This is to report a problem with ide driver on a Acer 32x CDROM. I am
    running 2.1.125 on an upgraded RedHat 5.1 (as per Changes file). PC is
    a PentiumII 333 w/64Mram, 3c509 ethernet adapter, no sound.

    The problem: sometime /dev/hdc (the cdrom) hangs a little, give me
    a tiemout (especially mounting ext2 cdroms), then a reset occurs and
    all is working well. I think it's a spin-up problem. But this morning
    I had to reboot the machine because, listening to a audio cd, I had
    the logs flooded with:

    Nov 4 10:34:42 pern kernel: hdc: lost interrupt
    Nov 4 10:34:42 pern kernel: hdc: cdrom_pc_intr:
    The drive appears confused (ireason = 0x 1)

    And the program (tcd) was lost in D state. Every attempt to access
    /dev/hdc resulted in a D-state process. So I rebooted. More info: at
    boot the drive is identified as:

    PIIX4: IDE controller on PCI bus 00 dev 39
    PIIX4: not 100% native mode: will probe irqs later
    ide0: BM-DMA at 0xf000-0xf007, BIOS settings: hda:pio, hdb:pio
    ide1: BM-DMA at 0xf008-0xf00f, BIOS settings: hdc:pio, hdd:pio
    hda: FUJITSU MPC3043AT, ATA DISK drive
    ide0 at 0x1f0-0x1f7,0x3f6 on irq 14
    ide1 at 0x170-0x177,0x376 on irq 15

    hdc: ATAPI 32X CDROM drive, 128kB Cache


    hdparm /dev/hdc

    HDIO_GET_MULTCOUNT failed: Invalid argument
    I/O support = 0 (default 16-bit)
    unmaskirq = 0 (off)
    using_dma = 1 (on)
    keepsettings = 0 (off)
    HDIO_GET_NOWERR failed: Invalid argument
    readonly = 1 (on)
    readahead = 8 (on)
    HDIO_GETGEO failed: Invalid argument

    I will try to disable dma on the cdrom and see what happens. Please
    tell me if you need more testing or info...
