To give a datapoint:

ICH5 works like a breeze with RH 2.4.20-19.9 kernel:

% lspci -vt

-[00]-+-00.0 Intel Corp. 82865G [Springdale-G] Chipset Host Bridge

This is an intel 865 PERLK desktop board with a 2,6 GHz HT CPU. Even
the ICH5 serial ATA works which really had me impressed:

ICH5-SATA: IDE controller at PCI slot 00:1f.2
ICH5-SATA: chipset revision 2
ICH5-SATA: 100% native mode on irq 18
ide2: BM-DMA at 0xdc00-0xdc07, BIOS settings: hde:DMA, hdf:pio
ide3: BM-DMA at 0xdc08-0xdc0f, BIOS settings: hdg:pio, hdh:pio
hde: Maxtor 6Y120M0, ATA DISK drive
hde: attached ide-disk driver.
hde: host protected area => 1
hde: 240121728 sectors (122942 MB) w/7936KiB Cache, CHS=238216/16/63, UDMA(33)

(The UDMA(33) seems to be a lie, I can read ~ 57 MBytes/sec from this disk).

So there might be some patches in the RH kernel, that are missing from
2.4.22-rc2

Henning
