Description James Courtier-Dutton 2006-03-22 16:18:55 UTC
Most recent kernel where this bug did not occur: Still happens.
Distribution: Linux version 2.6.15-gentoo-r7 (root@localhost) (gcc version 3.4.5
(Gentoo 3.4.5-r1, ssp-3.4.5-1.0, pie-8.7.9)) #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Mar 14 23:04:58
GMT 2006
Hardware Environment: Pentium 4
Software Environment: Linux 2.6.15-gentoo-r7
Problem Description: 

After using
hdparm -S60 /dev/sda
on a SATA disk, the drive will eventually go to sleep.
When one goes to wake it up, it sometimes works, and sometimes does not.
When it fails, one gets an oops
see attachment for extract from kern.log (dmesg)

Steps to reproduce:
hdparm -S60 /dev/sda
wait for the HD to go to sleep.
Try to access the HD.
Repeat until failure.

There were multiple fixes to libata. Have you tried latest kernel? Thanks.
