    SubjectSATA probe delay on boot

    I have a Sil3112A SATA controller, which linux works OK
    with. It supports RAID (up to 4 devices), but I'm using
    BASE option -- only 1 hard drive.

    My question is regarding a 15-20 second delay which
    normally occurs every time I boot, unless I pass the
    options ide3=0 - ide9=0 to fill up the device table. I
    think I have to do this because if I do only ide3=0
    (where the device would be), it uses ide4, and so on. I
    have GRUB set up to do this automatically, but it's not
    exactly adequate (,is it?). So I was wondering if
    there're any other ways to get the same affect. Is or
    could there be an option to simply disable the probing
    of the one specific device/channel every time?
