Description Tobias Margitan 2005-04-28 15:24:58 UTC
Distribution: Gentoo Linux 2005.0
Hardware Environment: Asus CUR-DLS Dual P3 / Serverworks Chip + Highpoint 372
softraid crap controller
Software Environment: 2.6.11, actual gentoo ~x86 tree
Problem Description: since 2.6.8 I get Kernel Panics in module hpt372 wich is
included in hpt366 driver

Steps to reproduce:
Since I use that controller due to unstabilities just as normal ide controller I
got no more trouble. But 2.6.7 was the las kernel that was able to bring hpt372
up. I dont need to boot from that device but my storage HDDs are on its line.
What I can see from the error is this, although there is quite more above that.
Screen begins with:

Process swapper (pid: 1, threadinfo=dffc1000 task=dffc0a40)
Stack: c0311375... <many more 8bit columns>
Call Trace: [<c0311375>] hpt372_tune_chipset+0xd5/0x160
next in call trace are more ide and htp related things connected to the stack
Code: ff 85 c0 ba... and more of 2 bit code
<0>Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

and thats the point where I have to go with the reset button and be happy my
2.6.7 still exists :/

thanks for reading

There were added three patches to the sources described in here:
just search the changelog for "hpt" and you'll find.
is it possible to undo that patches? at least one of them has to cause the errors...

What's the status of this issue in kernel 2.6.16-rc1?

hpt372 device didnt work properly anymore.
