Description Joni Bäcklund 2007-02-16 10:22:42 UTC
Description of problem:

With all 2.6.19 kernels for FC6 the system wont boot. Just tested
2.6.19-1.2911.fc6 and the same result was seen. The system panics while booting
. I can not produce logs as there is no serial port on the system. But when
systems tries to resume from /dev/i2o/hda1 ( swap  partition ) kernel reports
I/O error on device i2o/hda. 

The system works ok with other kernels aka. 2.6.18 series and it is running
latest 2.6.18 series ( 2.6.18-1.2869.fc6 ) just now.

It seems to me that the i2o driver is broken on 2.6.19 ! 

dmesg from the working 2.6.18 is as follows:

I2O subsystem v1.325
i2o: max drivers = 8
i2o: Checking for PCI I2O controllers...
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:0b.0[A] -> GSI 19 (level, low) -> IRQ 169
iop0: controller found (0000:00:0b.0)
iop0: limit sectors per request to 128
iop0: PCI I2O controller at E4000000 size=1048576
iop0: Installed at IRQ 169
i2o: iop0: Activating I2O controller...
i2o: iop0: This may take a few minutes if there are many devices

iop0: HRT has 1 entries of 16 bytes each.
Adapter 00000012: TID 0000:[HPC*]:PCI 1: Bus 1 Device 22 Function 0
i2o: iop0: Controller added
I2O Block Device OSM v1.325
block-osm: registered device at major 80
 i2o/hda: i2o/hda1 i2o/hda2 i2o/hda3 i2o/hda4
block-osm: device added (TID: 207): i2o/hda

I did check that the initrd has the right modules but the system does not
boot as it can not read i2o/hda with 2.6.19 kernel.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
all 2.6.19 update kernels for fc6 that I tested. 

How reproducible:
boot the 2.6.19 kernel

Steps to Reproduce:
