Summary0004864: VIA VT6420/1 and WD drives incompatibility
Description[ Copied from CentOS-5 bug #4851 ]

Greetings,

I was hit by an infamous hardware incompatibility between VIA VT6420/1 sata
card (sata_via) and newer Western Digital drives.

The bug has been worked around in mainline kernel at 2.6.32.7,
         * https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15173
         * http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.ide/46352
         * http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/1062139

The sata_via patch from bug#15173 applies cleanly to sata_via module of
2.6.18-238 and now I'm running using a 'fixed' module with no problem.

I see you have filed at the upstream bugzilla:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=701916

Could you add the CentOS bug number in the "External Trackers" section?

Thanks.

I plan on adding the patch(es) to the centosplus kernel in the next kernel update.

Excellent. By the way, I was told that there's a workaround from ELRepo already:
http://elrepo.org/tiki/kmod-sata_via
May be it's not necessary to update centosplus but rather use kmod temporarily and wait for the bug to be fixed upstream. They should do it sooner or later anyway.

Exactly right. On the other hand, it is a good thing to let users have multiple choices. In fact, provided the patch used by ELRepo works, that can be employed in the cplus kernel as such. No need to reinvent the wheel. :)

This report has been copied from bug#4851 in the CentOS-5 category.

The patch will be applied in the next kernel C6 update.
