Subjectweird /proc/ide/hdx/settings
Running kernel 2.4.2 :

max_kb_per_request has value 128 , but max is 127 !?

max for multcount is 8 , but my drive supports 16 sectors. ( see hdparm output below )
If I set multcount to 8 sectors ( hdparm -m 8 /dev/hdc )
then /proc/ide/hdc/settings will show :
multcount 4 0 8 rw

The values are divided by 2. Why ?


hdparm -i /dev/hdc :

/dev/hdc:

Model=IBM-DTLA-307045, FwRev=TX6OA60A, SerialNo=YMEYMML9342

IDE interface is VIA xxx686b ( ATA-100 )
IDE driver is VIA IDE v4.3
