I have the same message but only when I'm using my ieee-1394 devices (
firewire ) .
I copy from NFS to ieee-1394 HD and approximatively at 256 meg of copied
data from network I have the message (wait_for_cmd_timeout), and I'm not
able use the network, nor the mounted HD.

I need to say the system is running 2.4.18 SMP ( 2 proc ) with 2go of
RAM (higmeme 4-GB from suse ) ( It's a scientific data analysis and extraction system ).

What should I do ?
Should I remove the code you told me to remove ?
