Subjectlibata and software RAID
Date

Hello Jeff (and others),

I am currently running a 2.6.9 kernel on my system, and everything's fine,
but for a little issue:

I have an ASUS A7N8X Deluxe board with on-board nforce2-chipset and a SiS
S-ATA controller.

Previously, my two S-ATA drives had been driven by the IDE driver, and were
assembled to a RAID-1 MD device (via software RAID) on them.

Now, with 2.6.9, the libata driver takes over, and my md device seems no
longer present (booting to an older 2.6.5 kernel, however, makes them visible
again). The IDE driver seems not to probe for the S-ATA drives in the first
hand:

<dmesg>
NFORCE2: IDE controller at PCI slot 0000:00:09.0
NFORCE2: chipset revision 162
NFORCE2: not 100% native mode: will probe irqs later

</dmesg>

Can you tell me how I either
a) am able to "import" the RAID-1 md device, the meta-information of which is
now located on SCSI drives, or
b) tell the IDE driver to probe the S-ATA bus and tell the libata driver to
NOT drive my S-ATA drives?

The other question is: libata seems to activate UDMA/100 for my S-ATA drives,
although they are able to run with UDMA/133. "hdparm" does not work with SCSI
drives, in this case. Can I tell libata to activate UDMA/133?

Many thanks for your help and best regards

Oliver Tennert
