  1. Bug#479217: linux-latest-2.6: Wrong UDMA mode due to error in 40/80 wire cable detection

    Package: linux-latest-2.6
    Severity: normal

    As reported against Ubuntu in
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ux/+bug/195221,
    on the Asus Eee PC, "the disk is reported as UDMA66 capable,
    but is installed as UDMA33 because the system does not detect
    a 80 pin conductor."

    And indeed, when I check dmesg on Debian I see:

    ata1: SATA max UDMA/133 cmd 0x1f0 ctl 0x3f6 bmdma 0xffa0 irq 14
    ata2: PATA max UDMA/100 cmd 0x170 ctl 0x376 bmdma 0xffa8 irq 15
    ata2.00: ATA-4: SILICONMOTION SM223AC, , max UDMA/66
    ata2.00: 7815024 sectors, multi 0: LBA
    ata2.00: limited to UDMA/33 due to 40-wire cable
    ata2.00: configured for UDMA/33

    This has been patched in the kernel upstream, as reported in
    the Ubuntu bug cited above:

    http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kerne...7ffed727e50df1

    Would you please apply this one-line patch to Debian's
    current kernel?

    Thanks,
    Ben
