Description Peter Kovář 2005-01-19 06:19:55 UTC
Hardware Environment: TOSHIBA notebook based on Intel 82855PM & 82801DBM (ICH4-M)

Problem Description: Wait during boot until timeout occurs while probing for
nonexisting IDE3, IDE4, IDE5

Steps to reproduce:
Recompilation of kernel w/ following modification avoids wait and helped to
speed up boot sequence.

#define MAX_HWIFS	2

Maybe it's just on this line of nice HW, but Linux 2.4 as well as FreeBSD 5.3
are booting without nasty wait.
