SubjectRe: [PATCH 3/3] Use correct IDE error recovery
Date

Hi,

(sorry for the long delay)

This change looks fine, indeed we are better of using SRST + SET_FEATURES
than IDLE_IMMEDIATE.

Is the removal of ERROR_RECAL handling intentional?
There is nothing about it in the patch description...

Could this part of the comment be merged into the patch description?
We don't want to clutter the code with the history of the changes.

hmm, it doesn't have to be UDMA mode,

The patch fixes code in ide_ata_error() and updates the comment
for ide_error() but ide_atapi_error() is not left untouched
(it still uses IDLE IMMEDIATE).

I suppose that ide_atapi_error() (for ATAPI devices) needs similar fix?

Please update the patch to not depend on ide_config_drive_speed() fixes
[PATCH 2/3] which need more work (shouldn't be a problem as the code here
uses _irq variant anyway).

Please respin the patch so I could merge it.

Thanks,
Bart
