SubjectRe: [BUG] 2.4.18.3, ide-patch, read_dev_sector hangs in read_cache_page
Date

Hi Norbert,

Could you try this patchlet to fs/partitions/check.c::read_dev_sector() and look if there is any output by dmesg? It's
a bit of a shot in the dark but will at least exclude this as the source for the peoblem...
