SubjectProblem with ata layer in 2.6.24
Greeting;

I had to reboot early this morning due to a freezeup, and I had a
bunch of these in the messages log:
==============

===============
That one showed up about 2 hours ago, so I expect I'll be locked
up again before I've managed a 24 hour uptime. This drive passed
a 'smartctl -t long /dev/sda' with flying colors after the reboot
this morning.
Two instances were logged after I had rebooted to 2.6.24 from 2.6.24-rc8:

None were logged during the time I was running an -rc7 or -rc8.

The previous hits on this resulted in the udma speed being downgraded
till it was actually running in pio just before the freeze that
required the hardware reset button.

I'll reboot to -rc8 right now and resume. If its the drive, I should see it.
If not, then 2.6.24 is where I'll point the finger.

Idea's anyone?
