SubjectRe: 2.2.0p3 Kernel Bug ( DMA for IDE )

I have a Gateway THOR motherboard part # MBDSAC0027AAWW. Please note I
think that part # is shipping typo, because I have maunals that read
MBDSAC027AW.

I read over the manuals and references (I'm not a very big hardware
person.) I found something else odd, I'll metion that later. According to
the motherboard manaul that I have, it's running @ 30Mhz because I have a
120Mhz intel 586. It isn't overclocked. The website says that it is also
Socket 7. I'm inculding some info from 2.2.0p4's /proc, since I may have
left something out. I hope this helps the kernel stuff you guys do, keep
up the good work. =)

The funny thing is all these manuals READ "..has two banks, with two slots
each", which is odd because it looks like I only have 3 RAM chips.
Shouldn't this be a bad thing? (tm) If you'd like me to double check
anything, I'd be glad to tear her down, pull her apart for you. =)

Here's the web site for my hardware, if you're curious:
