Just to rule out a few things, try disabling the following options in
CONFIG_IDE_TASK_IOCTL (IDE Taskfile Access)
CONFIG_IDE_TASKFILE_IO (IDE Taskfile IO)
CONFIG_TULIP_MWI (New bus configuration)
CONFIG_TULIP_MMIO (Use PCI shared mem for NIC registers)
CONFIG_TULIP_NAPI (Use NAPI RX polling)
CONFIG_TULIP_NAPI_HW_MITIGATION (Use Interrupt Mitigation)
Taskfile access is, afaict, needed only if you're doing disk forensics
or such. The new taskfile IO code hung up on me a few times on Cobalt
when I was initially testing some of Peter's 2.6.x patches, and as such,
I haven't cut it on since then.
Tulip, I don't recall which, but I *think* one of them also caused me
some kind of an issue, I'm unsure if it was a hang or something else. In
either case, I left them as is.
