Hi,

one user reported what seemed to be an SiS5513 IDE related bug during 
kernel loading with the 2.4.20-9 RH9 kernel.

# Summary :

- The hardware is a SiS5513 based IBM Aptiva (Pentium 166 with F00F bug)
- The symptom is an invalid EIP in sis5513.c's config_art_rwp_pio (from 
the stack trace summary reported) when trying to configure hdc or hdd. 
The kernel boots if passed hdc=none and hdd=none.
- Reverting to the 2.4.18-27.8.0 RH8 kernel solves the problem.
- The problem is 100% reproducible on this hardware.
- different lspci -vxxx tries show unexpected results, see below

# More matter for thought :

What puzzles me is that the sis5513.c driver behaviour at boot time 
didn't change for this hardware between these 2 kernels !
I requested lspci -vxxx and dmesg output from fresh cold boots in the 
following configurations :

RH8   : 2.4.18-27.8.0 without extra parameters
RH8_2 : 2.4.18-27.8.0 with "hdc=none hdd=none"
RH9   : 2.4.20-9 with "hdc=none hdd=none"

and found out the following :

1/ Some dmesg differences :

RH9 inits the floppy device earlier (before the ide devices instead of 
after them),
RH9 adds "Speakup".

2/ There's a difference in the ISA bridge config registers between the 
RH8 and the RH8_2 tests :

I don't know what these registers are used for but I don't see any 
reason for these changes. I guess there aren't related to the kernel 
parameters as previously (without cold boot guarantee) lspci reported 
once the following register values too (RH8 or RH8_2 type boot) :

50: 11 28 02 01 60 00 66 00 9c 2e 12 00 36 06 00 00

3/ lspci couldn't find the IDE I/O ports with the RH9 kernel (on several 
tries)

With the RH8 kernel lspci reports the following :
00:01.1 IDE interface: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 5513 [IDE] (rev 
08) (prog-if 8a [Mas

        I/O ports at 0170
        I/O ports at 0374
        I/O ports at fe80 [size=16]
[...]

I don't know what to think of this one either.

Hoping this will make some sense for somebody,

LB
