SubjectRe: VIA Southbridges in 2.4.18-rc3
Date
I know this is from a while ago but are their any plans to include
the via 8233a southbridge support in 2.4.19/20?

If not can somebody point me in the right direction on how I would
modify timing.h and via82xxx.c from 2.5.* to enable it to work in
the 2.4.* kernels.

Yours

That, and adding some code in drivers/ide/via82xxx.c,
{ "vt8233c", PCI_DEVICE_ID_VIA_8233C, 0x00, 0x2f, VIA_UDMA_100 },
is right now ifdef'ed out, and the entry for the vt8233a, which is
{ "vt8233a", PCI_DEVICE_ID_VIA_8233A, 0x00, 0x2f, VIA_UDMA_133 },
in 2.5.2, is missing (and there is no UDMA_133 in 2.4).

Right now I am running a 2.4.18-pre9 with a slightly modified
drivers/ide/(timing.h|via82xxx.c) from 2.5.2, and it works with my
vt8233a and an UDMA-100 disk, but this is of course not a
conservative change. Maybe the patch by Vojtech Pavlik mentioned
in the message I referred to above is less radical.

Yours, Florian.
