The kernel seems to boot with DMA enabled for this drive which causes
frequent system lockups. This is the same problem I had with kernels
through 2.4.9 (including the ac series). Disabling DMA (hdparm -d0
/dev/hda) solves the problem.
Is this a hardware issue with the MP chipset (I have not kept up to date
on AMD errata due to other projects), or is this drive one of the known
IDE drives that do not properly support DMA? If a chipset issue, should
the kernel not detect the problem and disable DMA?
