Subject2.5.33: modular ide breaks lilo ...
  Hi,

I've tried building the ide driver modular and insmod it using an
initrd. The kernel boots just fine, but lilo complains:

bogomips root ~# lilo
Device 0x0300: Invalid partition table, 2nd entry
3D address: 1/0/262 (264096)
Linear address: 1/10/4175 (4209030)

I've also noticed that the fdisk output looks different depending on
modular vs. static ide, I suspect this is related. With a modular IDE
driver it looks like this:

bogomips root ~# fdisk -l /dev/hda

Disk /dev/hda: 16 heads, 63 sectors, 79780 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 1008 * 512 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 1 4176 2104483+ b Win95 FAT32
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary:
phys=(261, 254, 63) should be (261, 15, 63)
/dev/hda2 * 4176 68659 32499495 5 Extended
Partition 2 does not end on cylinder boundary:
phys=(1023, 254, 63) should be (1023, 15, 63)
/dev/hda4 68659 79768 5598652+ a5 FreeBSD
Partition 4 does not end on cylinder boundary:
phys=(1023, 254, 63) should be (1023, 15, 63)
/dev/hda5 4176 6264 1052226 82 Linux swap
/dev/hda6 6264 18759 6297448+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda7 18759 68659 25149726 83 Linux

With ide built-in statically fdisk prints this:

bogomips root ~# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/hda: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 5005 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 1 262 2104483+ b Win95 FAT32
/dev/hda2 * 263 4308 32499495 5 Extended
/dev/hda4 4309 5005 5598652+ a5 FreeBSD
/dev/hda5 263 393 1052226 82 Linux swap
/dev/hda6 394 1177 6297448+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda7 1178 4308 25149726 83 Linux

Any idea?

Gerd
