Subject[PATCH] 2.5.20 IDE 86
Most importantly this makes ide-scsi work again, which I broke
IDE 85. And we are starting to be serious about locking issues.
However the locking issues will take some patches until they stabilize.

Wed Jun 5 22:08:15 CEST 2002 ide-clean-86

- Add spin locks in ata_special_intr.

- Add Server Works CSB6 handling by Matt Domsch.

- Atari updates by Geert Uytterhoeven:
* irq_lock is used in more than one file, so make it global and rename it
to ide_irq_lock
* `hwgroup' is dead, use `channel' instead
* ide_irq_lock depends on ATA_ARCH_LOCK, not on m68k or APUS

- Small janitorial tidbits by Angus Sawyer.

- PIIX driver updates by Vojtech Pavlik:

* Removes the CONFIG_BLK_DEV_PIIX_TRY133 option. I've got an official
statement from Intel saying that the controller definitely isn't intended
to operate at this speed and doing so may cause severe trouble.

* Fixes a bug in ata-timing.c, where EIDE timing data was discarded by

* Fixed a couple bugs in the Artop driver (UDMA clocks, active/recovery
timing), 8-bit timing merging.

* Removes an unused variable from piix.c

- Move locking out from ide_set_handler(). There are places where it incurred
too frequent lock grab and release or where we did miss to lock against
concurrent hardware access.

Generally the locking appears to be too fine grained and inconsistent at many
places. This is the first cut. We will deal with it step by step.

- Make sure message string is initialized even if FANCY_STATUS_DUMPS is

- Don't lock directly inside udma_init and implementations of this method.

- Guard against REQ_SPECIAL issued by the SCSI layer on us. Use REQ_PC in
ide-scsi.c instead.
