Description Ann Gover 2007-03-25 22:25:16 UTC
Description of problem:
Fedora Core 5 vanilla kernel 2.6.15 allows use of i2o driver to control 
Adaptec 1200 series IDE RAID Card (using BIOS version 1.62 as of 11/6/02 -- 
last BIOS update they have).  Upon installation of newest core 2.6.20-
1.2307.fc5, the i2o driver fails to work correctly.

Error provided upon rebooting to new Kernel load is "Buffer I/O on device 
i20/hda logical block 0".  It then fails to load any of the RAID or drives or 
allow access.  Fedora Core 6 is worse in that the i2o driver will not even 
recognize the RAID array.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.6.15 original to upgrade to 2.6.20-1.2307.fc5

How reproducible:
upgrade kernel with this hardware device and error is duplicatable each time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Use FC5 2.6.15 and setup Card using i2o driver
2.  Create partition and file
3.  Upgrade to newest kernal and reboot -- RAID card i2o will fail
Actual results:

Expected results:

I have tested with fc5 kernel and the i2o driver still
works correctly.  On kernel's - the i2o driver fails to load
the RAID correctly and the kernel fails.
