SubjectRe: i845PE chipset and 20276 Promise Controller boot failure with 2.4.20-ac2

FYI: This problem is resolved at least as of 2.4.21-pre3-ac2. I suspect
it is resolved as of 2.4.21-pre3 but I have not specifically tried that
load. Specifically, I suspect it is the patch to drivers/pci/quirks.c that
Alan Cox posted on 16 December for people seeing IDE controllers but no
disks. I *do* see output from the printk added in that patch:

printk(KERN_INFO "PCI: Ignoring BAR%d-%d of IDE controller %s\n",
first_bar, last_bar, dev->slot_name);

Alan, Andre, would it be useful to y'all for me to try any different kernel
versions between 2.4.18 and 2.4.21-pre3-ac2 to pin things down, or are
y'all satisfied with the information that 2.4.21-pre3 solves this problem?
Would it be useful if I forwarded the kernel printk's from the boot

Reminder: This is a Gigabyte GA-8PE667 Ultra motherboard (aka P4 Titan 667
Ultra) with the i845PE chipset plus a Promise RAID controller (PDC20276).
I have a single hard drive (hde) as the master drive on the first channel
of the Promise controller and in the BIOS I have the Promise controller in
ATA mode, not RAID mode. On the main IDE controller I have one hard disk
as the master on one channel (hda) and one CDROM as the slave on the other
channel (hdd). (I know I should move the CDROM to be primary on that
channel but have been too lazy to pull the CDROM out to do this.)

Please CC me on any responses.
