Description Martin Steigerwald 2006-06-22 23:54:16 UTC
Most recent kernel where this bug did not occur: no later one tested
Distribution: Debian Etch/Sid
Hardware Environment: IBM ThinkPad T23
Software Environment: 
Problem Description:

Kernel 2.6.17.1 shows dma_intr: status=0x58 for /dev/hda once on boot. Tested 
with plain vanilla 2.6.17.1 as well as vanilla + sws2 2.2.5.3.

This is the exact log excerpt from /var/log/syslog:

----------------------------------------------------------
Jun 23 07:35:30 deepdance kernel: hda: dma_intr: status=0x58 { DriveReady 
SeekComplete DataRequest }
Jun 23 07:35:30 deepdance kernel: ide: failed opcode was: unknown
Jun 23 07:35:30 deepdance kernel: hda: set_drive_speed_status: status=0x58 { 
DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest }
Jun 23 07:35:30 deepdance kernel: ide: failed opcode was: unknown
----------------------------------------------------------

Does that mean that my harddisk may fail soon? Or does kernel 2.6.17.1 try a 
command my controller or harddisk does not understand?


Diagnostic data follows:

smartctl seems to indicicate that all is well:

It shows some rather old errors that have been logged about a year or so - I 
decided long ago that these would not be critical, but I am not completely 
sure:

----------------------------------------------------------
Error 200 occurred at disk power-on lifetime: 393 hours (16 days + 9 hours)
  When the command that caused the error occurred, the device was active or 
idle.

  After command completion occurred, registers were:

----------------------------------------------------------

This is my harddisk (an IBM / Hitachi one):

Kernel command line: root=/dev/hda5 ro resume2=swap:/dev/hda7 resume=/dev/hda7
    ide0: BM-DMA at 0x1860-0x1867, BIOS settings: hda:DMA, hdb:pio

hda: cache flushes supported
 hda: hda1 hda2 hda3 hda4 < hda5 hda6 hda7 hda8 >


It has a quite high Load_Cycle_Count, since long time I used a sub optimal apm 
value in hdparm configuration:

----------------------------------------------------------
root@deepdance:~ -> smartctl -a /dev/hda | grep 'Load_Cycle_Count' | 
awk '{print $10}'
175309
----------------------------------------------------------

(see http://blog.philkern.de/archives/173-Load-Cycle-Fix-for-Toshiba-HDDs.html)


This is my hdparm configuration (/etc/hdparm.conf):

----------------------------------------------------------
/dev/hda {
       mult_sect_io = 16
       write_cache = off
       dma = on
       apm = 0
       acoustic_management = 128
       io32_support = 3
       keep_settings_over_reset = on
       interrupt_unmask = on
}
----------------------------------------------------------

I have write cache still off due issues with XFS and disabled write cache (see 
bug #6380). I want to try 2.6.17 which should have write barriers enabled by 
default for XFS some time with write cache disabled and then enable them to see 
whether it works stable.

This is the hardware:

Honestly I have no idea. I do not what triggers this behavior.

You misunderstand.  This question is asking whether an earlier kernel did
_not_ have this problem.  If so, what was that earlier version?

Comment 4 Martin Steigerwald 2006-06-23 00:23:38 UTC
Thanks, Andrew. I wanted to add this information as I recognized I did not 
include it and got a mid air collision ;-) with your comment.

I used 2.6.15.7 with sws2-2.2 before. I grepped through older logs and did not 
find any occurences of this error:

root@deepdance:/var/log -> zgrep "hda: dma_intr: status=0x58" syslog*
syslog:Jun 23 03:42:26 deepdance kernel: hda: dma_intr: status=0x58 { 
DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest }
syslog:Jun 23 07:35:30 deepdance kernel: hda: dma_intr: status=0x58 { 
DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest }
syslog.1.gz:Jun 23 01:44:26 deepdance kernel: hda: dma_intr: status=0x58 { 
DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest }

These are all with the new kernel.

I attach the kernel configuration of that older kernel as well.

A more generic grep did not show any different results:

root@deepdance:/var/log -> zgrep "hda: dma_intr" syslog*
syslog:Jun 23 03:42:26 deepdance kernel: hda: dma_intr: status=0x58 {

DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest }
syslog.1.gz:Jun 23 01:44:26 deepdance kernel: hda: dma_intr: status=0x58 {
DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest }


I am using 2.6.17.1 now with sws2 again cause it seems that the new sws1 from
2.6.17 seems to need that additional user space stuff in order to work - I
thought that it would work without it. At least it didnt work here - empty
screen with blinking cursor and nothing else. I decided for now to use what
works for me instead of trying some supposedly experimental userspace sws.

sws2 seems to work fine. But anyway I got this dma_intr message with 2.6.17.1
without sws2 as well (syslog.1.gz grep result).
Comment 6 Martin Steigerwald 2006-06-23 12:50:51 UTC
Now I also tested with the 2.6.16.11 the latest one of 2.6.16 that I used for a 
short time. This kernel also does not show the dma_intr messages at boot... 
thus this behaviour must have been introduced somewhere between 2.6.16.11 and 
2.6.17.1.

root@deepdance:~ -> cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.6.16.11-tp23-sws2-2.2.5 (root@deepdance) (gcc-Version 4.0.3 
(Debian 4.0.3-1)) #1 PREEMPT Fri Apr 28 13:17:58 CEST 2006

I reverted back to 2.6.15 cause sound didn't work after resume from sws 2 - it 
works nicely with 2.6.17 again ;-).

If needed I can try with 2.6.16.21 or whatever is latest 2.6.16 as well.

I attach kernel config of this one as well.

I leave all of these installed in case they are required for further testing.
Comment 8 James Slater 2006-06-27 05:06:59 UTC
I am experiencing (almost) the same issue. I have tested 2.6.16.20 and 2.6.17, 
the problem occurs in both.

The issue occurs when hdparm is used (-X68 -d1 -c1 -u1) while disk access is 
taking place. I've only noticed it recently due to recent changes in Gentoo 
which have enabled parallel startup of hdparm with other services. If I run 
hdparm manually, with no disk access going on, there is no problem. When it is 
run as part of the boot process the following appear in dmesg:

hda: set_drive_speed_status: status=0x58 { DriveReady SeekComplete 
DataRequest }
ReiserFS: warning: is_leaf: free space seems wrong: level=1, nr_items=29,

I assume the ReiserFS problems are related, they do not occur otherwise. 
Unfortunately often this leaves my system unable to boot with various errors 
(files missing, segmentation faults, permission problems).

Comment 9 Martin Steigerwald 2006-06-27 15:14:58 UTC
Hmmm, seems that I am also getting slight corruption here. With XFS.

See kernel bug #6757
Comment 10 Martin Steigerwald 2006-06-30 13:27:30 UTC
The slight corruption I had with XFS had a different cause. See that bugreport 
(bug #6757).
Comment 11 Natalie Protasevich 2007-07-08 12:42:11 UTC
Martin,
Any news on this problem? Is it still there with latest kernel?
If so, can you please do git bisect or binary search so you can identify the patch that broke it. It might take a while though.
Thanks.
Comment 12 Bartlomiej Zolnierkiewicz 2008-02-16 10:48:33 UTC
I'm closing this one, please re-open if it still happens with the recent kernels.
Comment 13 Martin Steigerwald 2008-02-16 11:44:17 UTC
Hmmm, this is ancient. I already forgot about this one.

I can't say much about it at the moment, since I am using libata since quite some time.

A 

zgrep "dma_intr" syslog*

does not yield any results on my T23 so I think at least libata doesn't have this issue ;).

So for me that issue is solved even when that is with a different driver architecture, closing bug. If anyone still has this issue with IDE drivers he/she can reopen it.
Comment 14 Martin Steigerwald 2008-02-16 11:45:58 UTC
One additional info: That zgrep results relate to 2.6.24 and 2.6.23 kernels, I think anything prior to that is logrotated to nil already.
Comment 15 Bartlomiej Zolnierkiewicz 2008-02-16 11:47:16 UTC
OK, thanks for info.
