Subject2.4.17: Hang after IDE detection


I recently got an older k6-2/333 with a SiS chipset and tried to install
linux on it.

Every recent distro I tryed with a 2.4.x kernel would hang after detecting
the SiS5513 controller.

Annoyed I took 2.4.17 compiled it on another machine. The IDE config was:
# ATA/IDE/MFM/RLL support

# IDE, ATA and ATAPI Block devices

It would hang exactly the same as the distros (written down from display
by hand):

Blah blah blah...
Uniform Multi-Platform E-IDE driver Revision: 6.31
ide: Assuming 33mhz etc etc
SIS5513: IDE controller on PCI bus 00 dev 09
PCI: Assigned IRQ 14 for device 00:01.1
SIS5513: chipset revision 208
SIS5513: not 100% native mode: will probe irqs later
ide0: BM-DMA at 0x4000-0x4007, BIOS settings hda:pio, hdb:pio
ide1: BM-DMA at 0x4008-0x400f, BIOS settings hdc:pio, hdb:pio
hda: ST34321A, ATA DISK drive
hdc: CD-540E, ATAPI CD/DVD-DROM drive
ide0 at 0x1f0-0x1f7,0x3f6 on irq 14
ide1 at 0x170-0x177,0x376 on ira 15

Keyboard is dead (no num-lock, no magic sysrq)

Things I have tryed and failed:
- Not using dma by default in kernel or nodma option
- Not enabling support for SiS5513 in kernel
- specifing hda geometry (hda=...), hdc=cdrom, hdb,hdd=noprobe
- kernels 2.4.11pre5 and redhat 7.1, Mandrake 8.0, 8.1 boot disks
- Andre's latest patches for 2.4.17 with SiS5513 configured

Things that succeeded:
- 2.2.x kernels were fine (x=10, 16 that were handy)
- 2.4.0test1-ac22 was also fine (tested without SiS5513 configured...)
- Andre's letest patches without SiS5513 configured

The /proc/pci of the machine after booting 2.4.17+Andre+no-SIS5513
injected into the Mandrake 8.1 bootdisk (again by hand):

PCI devices found:
Bus 0, device 0, function 0:
Host bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 5597 [SiS5582]
Master capable. Latency=255.
Bus 0, device 1, function 0:
ISA bridge: Silicon Inte... etc [SiS] 82C503/5513 (rev 1).
Bus 0, device 1, function 1:
IDE interface: Silicon ... etc [SiS] 5513 [IDE] (rev 208).
IRQ 14.
Master Capable. Latency=64.
I/O at 0x40000 [0x400f].
Bus 0, device 10, function 0:
VGA compatible controller: S3 Inc. ViRGE/DX or /GX (rev 1).
IRQ 12.
Master Capable. Latency=64. Min Gnt=4.Max Lat=255.
Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xe0000000 [0xe3ffffff].

Thanks for any help guys...

(now off to convince that Mandrake distro to install...)
