Hello,

[please CC me upon replying - thank you]

I have a Highpoint 370 PCI IDE controller, and both my 2.6.18.2 and 
Knoppix 5's 2.6.17 display the following messages:

(hdf is naked, there's no error in partition detection)

The same messages appear when manually trying to enable DMA with hdparm. 
The hdparm reading of hde is:

> /dev/hde:
>  multcount    = 16 (on)
>  IO_support   =  0 (default 16-bit)
>  unmaskirq    =  0 (off)
>  using_dma    =  0 (off)
>  keepsettings =  0 (off)
>  readonly     =  0 (off)
>  readahead    = 256 (on)
>  geometry     = 65535/16/63, sectors = 78165360, start = 0

hda, which is on the mainboard controller and works as hde used to as 
well, reads:

> /dev/hda:
>  multcount    = 16 (on)
>  IO_support   =  1 (32-bit)
>  unmaskirq    =  1 (on)
>  using_dma    =  1 (on)
>  keepsettings =  0 (off)
>  readonly     =  0 (off)
>  readahead    = 256 (on)
>  geometry     = 65535/16/63, sectors = 117231408, start = 0

In the controller's setup utility, I can choose access modes. If i 
switch it from UDMA5 to PIO0, the only difference during boot is:

> ide2: BM-DMA at 0xa000-0xa007, BIOS settings: hde:pio, hdf:pio

instead of

> ide2: BM-DMA at 0xa000-0xa007, BIOS settings: hde:DMA, hdf:DMA

Please help me getting DMA to work with this controller.

Thanks in advance,

Please try 2.6.20-rc4 and 2.6.20-rc3-mm1.

Both contain many fixes to IDE hpt driver (but -mm some more than vanilla).
