Subject2.2.17, Promise FastTrak66/PDC20262, ugly patches to enable second interface
Date
I started with this:

Software:

Linux 2.2.17
Unified IDE 6.30 (ide.2.2.17.all.20000904.patch.bz2)
Linux raid 0.90 (raid-2.2.17-A0)

Hardware:

Dual PIII-550
2 x PIIX4 IDE interfaces on motherboard
2 x Promise FastTrak 66 (PDC20262) in PCI slots

.config and dmesg available on request.

I could not get the second IDE interface on two Promise FastTrak66
(PDC20262, (C) 1998, BIOS revision 1.30) controllers to work until I
applied the following patch:

--- drivers/block/ide-pci.c Mon Oct 23 17:45:39 2000
+++ /tmp/kludged Mon Oct 30 18:31:47 2000
@@ -562,8 +562,6 @@
for (port = 0; port <= 1; ++port) {
unsigned long base = 0, ctl = 0;
ide_pci_enablebit_t *e = &(d->enablebits[port]);
- if (e->reg && (pci_read_config_byte(dev, e->reg, &tmp) || (tmp & e->mask) != e->val))
- continue; /* port not enabled */
if (IDE_PCI_DEVID_EQ(d->devid, DEVID_HPT366) && (port) && (class_rev < 0x03))
return;
if ((dev->class >> 8) != PCI_CLASS_STORAGE_IDE || (dev->class & (port ? 4 : 1)) != 0) {
This made the second IDE interface on both Promise cards work.

Am I missing something?

The patch disregards the enabled flag on the Promise card's second
IDE interface. Any idea why is that interface is not marked enabled?
More importantly, why is it not enabled on my cards, but apparently
enabled on all of the PDC20262 cards previously mentioned in lkml?

The second IDE on these cards certainly seems to be enabled, because
it's operating in UDMA66 mode through a raid5 sync, lots of md5summing,
and a bonnie or two:
