    pata_serverworks: disable 64-KB DMA transfers on Broadcom OSB4 IDE Controller · dd1e981a
    Scott Carter authored
    commit 37017ac6849e772e67dd187ba2fbd056c4afa533 upstream.
    The Broadcom OSB4 IDE Controller (vendor and device IDs: 1166:0211)
    does not support 64-KB DMA transfers.
    Whenever a 64-KB DMA transfer is attempted,
    the transfer fails and messages similar to the following
    are written to the console log:
       [ 2431.851125] sr 0:0:0:0: [sr0] Unhandled sense code
       [ 2431.851139] sr 0:0:0:0: [sr0]  Result: hostbyte=DID_OK driverbyte=DRIVER_SENSE

       [ 2431.851210] end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 121808
    When the libata and pata_serverworks modules
    are recompiled with ATA_DEBUG and ATA_VERBOSE_DEBUG defined in libata.h,
    the 64-KB transfer size in the scatter-gather list can be seen
    in the console log:

    lspci shows that the driver used for the Broadcom OSB4 IDE Controller is
       00:0f.1 IDE interface: Broadcom OSB4 IDE Controller (prog-if 8e [Master SecP SecO PriP])

               Kernel driver in use: pata_serverworks
    The pata_serverworks driver supports five distinct device IDs,
    one being the OSB4 and the other four belonging to the CSB series.
    The CSB series appears to support 64-KB DMA transfers,
    as tests on a machine with an SAI2 motherboard
    containing a Broadcom CSB5 IDE Controller (vendor and device IDs: 1166:0212)
    showed no problems with 64-KB DMA transfers.
    This problem was first discovered when attempting to install openSUSE
    from a DVD on a machine with an STL2 motherboard.
    Using the pata_serverworks module,
    older releases of openSUSE will not install at all due to the timeouts.
    Releases of openSUSE prior to 11.3 can be installed by disabling
    the pata_serverworks module using the brokenmodules boot parameter,
    which causes the serverworks module to be used instead.
    Recent releases of openSUSE (12.2 and later) include better error recovery and
    will install, though very slowly.
    On all openSUSE releases, the problem can be recreated
    on a machine containing a Broadcom OSB4 IDE Controller
    by mounting an install DVD and running a command similar to the following:
       find /mnt -type f -print | xargs cat > /dev/null
    The patch below corrects the problem.
    Similar to the other ATA drivers that do not support 64-KB DMA transfers,
    the patch changes the ata_port_operations qc_prep vector to point to a routine
    that breaks any 64-KB segment into two 32-KB segments and
    changes the scsi_host_template sg_tablesize element to reduce by half
    the number of scatter/gather elements allowed.
    These two changes affect only the OSB4.
