SubjectRe: [2.4 PATCH] Don't panic on IDE DMA errors

What was the panic base on error?
It should have aborted the request and block resends it.
However, the logic seems sane and if the request is lost on error this
would corrupt if it did not panic.

Is there a clear way to reproduce this in a controlled manner?

IE the goal would be to test data integerity on the events.

Cheers,
