Subject: C3600, sata controller

I asked a friend to lend us his card, which is the card2 listed below
and not things are becoming really weird

card1, Silicon Image, Inc. Adaptec AAR-1210SA
card2, Silicon Image, Inc. SiI 3124 PCI-X Serial ATA

the card1 is a PCI32 bit card, and uses the "sata_sil" driver
the card2 is a PCI64 bit card, and uses the "sata_sil24" driver

card1 is installed in a PCI32 slot, and it's moving 32Gbyte in a loop
without any issue

I have just tested card2 in each of the PCI-X slot (including the 3.3V
one) and ... it has always triggered the HPMC unit, crashing the

the hardware is different, and drivers are also different, but  ....
maybe the problem is related to 32 vs 64bit?

I am going to repeat the test with card2 installed in a PCI32 slot.
This should force it to 32bit: will it work correctly?
(hope this makes sense)


we have also checked if the kernel is correctly handling the ram
we have a C3600 with 8Gbyte of ram

mount -t tmpfs -o size=7G tmpfs /mnt/ramdrive/
dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/ramdrive/test.bin
badblocks -swv /mnt/ramdrive/test.bin
