SubjectHow to add a drive to DMA black list?
Hello all,

I have an ide hard drive that misbehaves when the option "enable DMA at
boot time" (2.4.x kernel) is selected (this is on a on board ide
controller). But on the other hand I have a Promise Ultra-ATA-100
controller with an IBM ATA-100 drive that, according to the menuconfig
information and the information at the top of the driver requires the
"enable DMA at boot time" feature to be selected.

I tried adding the string that is output for the bad drive by hdparm -i
into drivers/ide/ide-dma.c::drive_blacklist and
drivers/ide/ide-dma.c::bad_dma_drives but the kernel still says that it is
using DMA and the kernel hangs after displaying:

Dead.

What should I do? Thanks in advance,
