OK.

I should have said iomem, not ioports. But you have it there on those very
detailed web pages. There's nothing at 0xF8A8Axxx in either kernel.

yep. The only reelvant diff in the rc6 versus rc6-mm2 /proc/iomem is:

whch is to be expected if you removed the card.

It's strange (to me) that IDE is requesting a single-byte memory region.
Possibly we've broken the resource.c code such that it has some off-by-one
and is now rejecting single-byte requests.

If you're keen , the place to poke around is in
kernel/resource.c:__request_region(). Here's a starting patch:


--- a/kernel/resource.c~a
+++ a/kernel/resource.c
@@ -501,6 +501,10 @@ struct resource * __request_region(struc
conflict = __request_resource(parent, res);
if (!conflict)
break;
+ printk("conflict: %s[%Lx->%Lx]\n",
+ conflict->name,
+ (unsigned long long)conflict->start,
+ (unsigned long long)conflict->end);
if (conflict != parent) {
parent = conflict;
if (!(conflict->flags & IORESOURCE_BUSY))
_
Which should tell us what we're allegedly conflicting with.




Then again, perhaps IDE is broken (as well?), because you don't have any
single-byte iomem regions in your 2.6.17-rc6 /proc/iomem. It would be
interesting to run this patch in both 2.6.17-rc6 and in 2.6.17-rc6-mm2, see
what it says:
