2.5.63/64 do not boot: loop in scsi_error

Thu, 6 Mar 2003 02:01:38 +0100 (MET)

See that 2.5.64 came out - good. Time to send the next dev_t patch.
Unfortunately 2.5.63 and 2.5.64 do not boot.

A moment ago I looked at what goes wrong, and it turns out that
scsi_error is activated
[always a bad sign - I have never see it do any good, and
often see it crash the machine]
and an infinite loop occurs, leaving the machine rather dead.

(Total of 1 commands require eh work; scsi_unjam_host; requesting sense;
scsi_eh_done: result 0) - infinite repeat.

Have no time tonight to make a patch, but I suppose the author of
the 2.5.63 scsi_error.c changes knows what she did wrong.


[I can make 2.5.64 boot if I make sure no errors ever occur.
That means that I must disable get_evpd_page, get_serialnumber,
get_cachetype that my old stuff doesnt know about.
If I do that all is well.]
