So this rather painful and compiler-errorful bisection session ended up at:

commit 3d6392cfbd7dc11f23058e3493683afab4ac13a3
Author: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>
Date: Mon Jul 9 12:38:05 2007 +0200

bsg: support for full generic block layer SG v3


What is happening is that my old dual-PIII IDE-PIIX box running
hacked-about FC1 is locking up early in initscripts, just after "Finding
module dependencies".

Config is http://userweb.kernel.org/~akpm/config-vmm.txt with CONFIG_SCSI=n.

Occasionally I'll get an NMI watchdog timeout, but it's a rather
uninteresting one: the stack trace just points up into the idle task.

This:

+++ a/drivers/ide/ide.c
@@ -1052,9 +1052,9 @@ int generic_ide_ioctl(ide_drive_t *drive
int err, (*setfunc)(ide_drive_t *, int);

- err = scsi_cmd_ioctl(file, bdev->bd_disk->queue, bdev->bd_disk, cmd, p);
- if (err != -ENOTTY)
- return err;
+// err = scsi_cmd_ioctl(file, bdev->bd_disk->queue, bdev->bd_disk, cmd, p);
+// if (err != -ENOTTY)
+// return err;

switch (cmd) {
case HDIO_GET_32BIT: val = &drive->io_32bit; goto read_val;
_
fixes it.


I added this:

if (err != -ENOTTY)
return err;

and got:

and there it all stopped.
