SubjectXFS shutting down due to IO timeout on SATA disk (pata_via for CX700)
Since some time one of my systems "freezes" after limited uptime (a few hours), usually
during package compilation process.
This seems to happen only with recent kernel versions (2.6.27-rc*), don't remember if
it also happened with 2.6.26 (though I'm pretty sure it did not happen with early
2.6.2x series)

Unfortunately this always shutdowns the root filesystem rendering system unusable.

The kernel output below was generated by 2.6.27-rc5-git9, same symptoms happened with
other -rc releases of 2.6.27 though I couldn't look at dmesg because it happens to /
and I only enabled networked syslog pretty recently on that box in order to find out
what happens.

Unfortunately either the chipset or the BIOS do not support AHCI, for the SATA
controller as the only choice for SATA offered by BIOS is: IDE.


Is this a known issue? At least there seem to be similar ATA exceptions happening
lately according to search results returned by google when looking for the error
messages (exception and originating command).


-- improvement suggestion --
To keep the system running it would be nice if the failing command could be re-issued
after resetting the link and rediscovering the drive, that is, pushing the error to
upper layers only after new failure when retrying the operation following the reset.
-- end of suggestion --

If kernel config or complete output of dmesg is of some help, please let me know.

In case there are some tuning options to try in order to pinpoint the cause I can try
them out, that system is not in production use. (according to some of the messages I
found it could be related to drive cache flushing)
