Hi.

This week I ran into a strange hardware problem. During boot I got a 35 
second delay while waiting for IDE-disks that weren't there to report 
that they were not in a BSY state. The problem was most likely in the 
hardware but this patch enables you to ignore waiting for disks by 
setting hdX=noprobe (and not setting the geometry by hand) as a kernel 
option.

If no noprobe-option is set the code will work (more or less) as the 
original but if set the code will skip the ide_wait_not_busy() for that 
drive. Even if there would be a drive there and it is still BSY 
afterwards it should not matter since it isn't probed for later.

There are other ways to get around the "35-seconds-of-waiting-in-vain", 
like actually fix the hardware, insert a second drive that works or 
recompile the kernel with edd-support builtin (atleast I've seen that 
solution on a forum) and possibly others. But this patch would allow 
people to get Linux to boot quickly on wonky hardware without having to 
recompile anything.

(The code also honors the MAX_DRIVES variable instead of assuming that 
ther will be 2 drives on the bus.)

I will be happy for all the comments I can get. :) But be gentle, this 
is my first patch...

   Best regards
   Jonas Stare

I keep on hearing about problems with boot-time IDE probing.  It's public
enemy #1 with the embedded guys.

It does seem that operator intervention is needed in some fashion.

Maybe that's the fix, maybe not - I'll defer to others on that (please).

Your email client is wordwrapping the text, and replaces tabs with spaces. 
Most of them seem to do this nowadays.  For thunderbird, please see

Probably someone saving a billionth of a cent on a resistor.

Please first verify if you see the same problem with the newer ATA
drivers. I suspect you will and if so we should be fixing those not the
legacy drivers (or as well as ..)

The problem is that we are not hearing about them.

Please forward the reports to linux-ide@vger.kernel.org.

Jonas, could you also put printk() dumping content of 'stat' in
ide-iops.c::ide_wait_not_busy() so we can verify that it is not
some problem with ide_wait_not_busy() itself.

Hmm, so the first ide_wait_not_busy() (for the currently
selected device) is OK and doesn't stall?

It is better to check for ->present
(->forced_geom implies that ->present is set).

This changes the previous behavior adding an extra SELECT_DRIVE()
before trying the slave drive.

I am not sure about the chip-set but I think it was vt82c686b. It used 
the via82cxxx-driver, but only _after_ using the generic ide-code to 
probe/wait (a long time) for the disks. (This was in Suse 10.1 SP 1.)

Sorry. :( I don't have access to the hardware anymore (which is a 
"home-made" embedded machine). But from what I could get from poking 
around was that the BSY-bit on the slave (that never has or ever will 
exists) was set, probably because those who built the thing wanted to 
save money and/or space on that "billionth of a cent"-resistor that Alan 
Cox talked about.

It didn't stall for me... But even if it had, probe_hwif() will ignore 
the entire controller if you set "idex=noprobe".

(From drivers/ide/ide-probe.c)

static void probe_hwif(ide_hwif_t *hwif, void (*fixup)(ide_hwif_t *hwif))
{

Great comment. :) I'll change that right away...

Mmmm, yes, I know. But I couldn't come up with a clean and nice way to 
be sure that the first drive is selected. Maybe I could move it inside 
the if-statement below?

AFAIK this means kernel version 2.6.16.xx.

If this is the case maybe the underlying problem has been already fixed
(but it doesn't mean that your patch is not worth applying, quite the
contrary).

Then the code will miss re-selecting master drive after waiting for
slave one if there were no problems (rc == 0).

What about adding "if (unit)" statement before SELECT_DRIVE() call?

Please fix the issues + wordwrapping and resubmit.

Resubmit of IDE-probing-patch. It now checks hwif->drives[unit].present instead of
forced_geom and there is also an if-statement so it doesn't change back to the master
unless it have to. I choose to put it inside the if-statement that checks the return
code from ide_wait_not_busy, since it shouldn't revert back to the master drive unless
something is wrong and we have to leave the function. (I also left the old SELECT_DRIVE
after the for-loop so that we will select the master if everything is ok.) Inside the
if-statement or not makes not big difference until you get more than two drives on the
ide-bus...but this code should be ready for it. :)

Hmmm, I was rather fond of my "wait for the disk unless we are specifically told not to"
rather than "don't check unless there might be a disk there". ...on the other hand
thats not what my comment said. :)

Patch looks fine (thanks for fixing it) but please replace the changelog
above with the proper patch description (more like in your first mail which
contained the description of the problem encountered and of the solution,
also please try to keep it within 80-columns limit) - for git history patch
changelog is not really that interesting/valuable.

PS patch summary ("Subject:") may also be improved while at it - it should
describe the main goal of the patch, also since patch will be applied to
the current git tree giving the kernel version is not necessary.

There is a problem in some hardware where the kernel will stall for
35 seconds waiting for disks that dont exist. This patch will skip
waiting for the BSY-bit on ide-drives to go away if you set
hdx=noprobe as a kernel option and the disk is not marked
as 'present' (like when you set the geometry by hand).

If no noprobe-option is set the code will work (more or less) as the 
original but if set the code will skip the ide_wait_not_busy() for that 
drive. Even if there would be a drive there and it is still BSY 
afterwards it should not matter since it isn't probed for later.

(The code also honors the MAX_DRIVES variable instead of assuming that 
there will be two harddrives on the bus.)

Thanks!

PS There were still some whitespace problems (all tabs were replaced by
spaces) so I just applied it by hand (and made few minor cleanups while
at it).
