Unhappy Latest FC6 Kernels do not like JMB363 IDE ports

Hey All,

Background: This motherboard has an intel P965 chipset (ICH8). All 4 SATA drives are always recognized by Linux. It also has a JMicro IDE controller, to which I have a PATA CD-Rom drive attached, and a single SATA drive. As of this posting, I am running the latest BIOS provided by Gigabyte, F10.

I am currently running kernel 2.6.19-1.2911.6.5.fc6.i686 happily on my Gigabyte GA-P965-DS3 motherboard, with FIVE SATA hard drives and CD-ROM all detected.

However, all newer kernels released so far (as of this posting) no longer recognize the SATA drive attached to my JMicro IDE port, however, it still recognizes the CDROM drive.

It may be of interest to note possible BIOS settings, and how the affect detection of my IDE devices. The ICH8 managed ports have an option called AHCI which can be enabled or disabled. If I enable this option, Linux does not see any of them. Interestingly, during the BIOS screen, a 'secondary' Intel AHCI BIOS is booted and detects the IDE drives, as opposed to the main bios.

The JMicro ports have an option of IDE, AHCI, or RAID. Linux 2.6.19-1.2911.6.5.fc6.i686 will detect my SATA drive on this controller AND the CD-ROM PATA drive if this is set to IDE. However, if it's set to anything other than IDE, only the CD-ROM is detected.

Any FC6-released kernel thats newer than 2.6.19-1.2911.6.5.fc6.i686 behaves identically as noted above, however, no matter what setting is used in BIOS, the JMicro SATA drive is NOT detected...

The following is a snipit from a WORKING 2.6.19-1.2911.6.5-fc6.i686 boot:

Code:

The following is from a NON-WORKING boot of any newer kernel:

Code:
Uniform Multi-Platform E-IDE driver Revision: 7.00alpha2

JMB363: IDE controller at PCI slot 0000:05:00.0

JMB363: BIOS configuration fixed.
JMB363: chipset revision 2
JMB363: 100% native mode on irq 18
JMB363: dma_base is invalid
ide0: JMB363 Bus-Master DMA disabled (BIOS)

    ide2: BM-DMA at 0x8000-0x8007, BIOS settings: hde:DMA, hdf:pio
    ide3: BM-DMA at 0x8008-0x800f, BIOS settings: hdg:DMA, hdh:pio
hde: ASUS CD-S520/A4, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
ide2 at 0x7000-0x7007,0x7402 on irq 16
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you for your time.

Hello:
I believe that this is a reported bug, however you may want to scan through and see if it is the same issue that you are encountering.

Bugzilla Bug 224680

Yep, I saw that bug.. Doesn't look like the same to me. First of all, the kernel that person is reporting as problematic is older than the one I'm using, which is working. My problem is with newer kernels than the one I'm using.

Secondly, it looks like the problem he is reporting is that his chipset is being recognizes as a JM361, when it's really a JM363.. Mine is detected correctly as JM363 on all kernels.

I would report it as a bug. They are phasing out the ide subsystem and all future ide drives will be handled by the libata module which uses the scsi subsystem to assign all devices. So all ide interfaces will now be identified as sd_ or sg_.

I get FC6 to boot with later kernels, but my /var/log/messages is completely filled up with (>65MB worth!)
May 27 04:30:30 localhost kernel: hda: status error: status=0x59 { DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest Error }
May 27 04:30:30 localhost kernel: hda: status error: error=0x44 { AbortedCommand LastFailedSense=0x04 }
May 27 04:30:30 localhost kernel: ide: failed opcode was: unknown
May 27 04:30:30 localhost kernel: hda: drive not ready for command

and the occasional
ay 27 04:30:34 localhost kernel: BUG: soft lockup detected on CPU#0!
May 27 04:30:34 localhost kernel:
May 27 04:30:34 localhost kernel: Call Trace:

I'm running on a GA-965P-S3, using the ICH8 SATA ports for 2 HDs and the JMicron 363 for an IDE optical drive. If you find any more information on this, please post it to this thread!

I had the exact same issue on an Asus P5B-E motherboard. Fix was to load the latest BIOS and enable AHCI for the Jmicron controller...

I have a similar problem with a Promise controller in IDE mode, so I use a 2.18 kernel which works just fine.

On a positive note, the problem does not exist (for me) in FC7 since test2, so perhaps in a few days you can try FC7 release
