Subjectaic7xxx SCSI problem on 2.4.18-SMP
Date
(please, reply to my mail, i'm not subscribed to lkml)

Hi,
I have a problem to get aic7xxx running on SMP machine. Problem started when
i upgraded from old RedHat 6.2 (with many modifications) to new MandrakeLinux.
The machine is old (1996) dual PPRO 200MHz, 128M Ram, Adaptec 2940 UltraWide
SCSI adapter (AIC7880) with 3 drives attached, running MandrakeLinux 8.2.
When probing SCSI, it hangs a while, and then it starts to write those
well-known messages ad-infinitum (and machine won't boot):
---
scsi0:0:0: Attempting to queue an ABORT message
scsi0: Dumping Card State in Command phase, at SEQADDR 0xbf
ACCUM = 0x80, SINDEX = 0xa0, DINDEX = 0xe4, ARG_2 = 0x0
HCNT = 0xa
SCSISEQ = 0x12, SBLKCTL = 0xa
.....
---
These are maybe not accurate, if you need exact ones, i have to rewrite them
from screen - in this state, they are not written to log :((

It happens ONLY when running SMP kernel - when using UniProcessor one,
everything works ok. I tested several combinations:

hangs:
SMP kernel 2.4.18 (mandrake), "new" aic7xxx driver rev 6.2.4 as module
(default install)
SMP kernel 2.4.18 (mandrake), "new" aic7xxx driver rev 6.2.4 compiled-in
SMP kernel 2.4.18 (mandrake), aic7xxx_old driver rev 5.2.0 as module
SMP kernel 2.4.18 (mandrake), aic7xxx_old driver rev 5.2.0 as compiled-in
SMP kernel 2.4.18 (linus), "new" aic7xxx driver rev 6.2.4 as module
SMP kernel 2.4.18 (linus), "new" aic7xxx driver rev 6.2.4 compiled-in
SMP kernel 2.4.18 (linus), aic7xxx_old driver rev 5.2.0 as module
SMP kernel 2.4.18 (linus), aic7xxx_old driver rev 5.2.0 as compiled-in

works:
UniProc kernel 2.4.18 (mandrake), "new" aic7xxx driver rev 6.2.4 as module
(default install)
UniProc kernel 2.4.18 (mandrake), "new" aic7xxx driver rev 6.2.4 compiled-in
UniProc kernel 2.4.18 (linus), "new" aic7xxx driver rev 6.2.4 as module
(i didn't tested more UP combinations, looks they all would work)

(no HIMEM was used on compiled kernels)

There was some article about combining writes enabled in BIOS on some VIA
motherboards, so i checked my BIOS and only similiar option i have found was
"PCI Burst Write Combine". Even when disabled, results are still the same.

Any ideas how to start SMP on this?
Thx Chris
