At least no reported loss of data. Filesystem is reiserfs.

It's ok with 2.4.21-pre6-ac1 and 2.6.0-test1-bk. So I go for the kernel
problem. But my knowledge of IDE and harddisks is about null.

hi,

this is a bug report?!

with the linux kernel 2.4.22-pre8 from bk as of this day I get short stalls
about 5 to 8 seconds resulting in nothing happening with my machine at all.
(right now it happenend, but I can still type this)

the kernel reports the following two messages:

hda: dma_timer_expiry: dma status == 0x64
hda: DMA interrupt recovery
hda: lost interrupt
...
hda: dma_timer_expiry: dma status == 0x64
hda: DMA interrupt recovery
hda: lost interrupt
hda: dma_timer_expiry: dma status == 0x64
hda: DMA interrupt recovery
hda: lost interrupt
hda: dma_timer_expiry: dma status == 0x64
hda: DMA interrupt recovery
hda: lost interrupt

and so on.

so maybe this helps you find an error in the kernel.

best wishes,
axel siebenwirth

P.S. I attached gzipped dmesg and .config
