If you give me a patch, I'll apply it and cause lock up and report the result. Just shoot the patches my way. But maybe reproducing the lock up on your machine would be the better solution. It isn't difficult at all. Plug in, fire up IO, disconnect, wait. Connect different drive. Rinse and repeat. It will lock up pretty soon. -- tejun - To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-ide" in the body of a message to [EMAIL PROTECTED] More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
