Darren,

Tejun Heo reverted your pata_atiixp patch a month ago. [1]

Unfortunately the kernel 4.11 doesn't boot without your patch so I have to patch the kernel 4.11 source code with your patch additonally.

Would you like to add a new patch to the kernel source code?

I added the following code to the file 'a/drivers/ata/pata_atiixp.c' and after that I compiled the kernel 4.11-rc8 again. The kernel 4.11-rc8 boots without any problems on my AmigaOne X1000.

a/drivers/ata/pata_atiixp.c:

Code: Select all
+    /* SB600 on the Nemo board doesn't have secondary port wired */
+    #ifdef CONFIG_PPC_PASEMI_NEMO
+    if((pdev->device == PCI_DEVICE_ID_ATI_IXP600_IDE))
+        ppi[1] = &ata_dummy_port_info;
+    #endif


Is it possible, to submit this code to the kernel developers?

What do you think about the code above?

Thanks,
Christian

Hi All,

I created a new Nemo patch with the new pata_atiixp code today. After that I compiled the RC8-2 for testing.

New:

Hi All,

I compiled the new stable kernel 4.11.2 with the new BFQ I/O scheduler today.

BFQ loads programs extremely fast under heavy disk I/O activity. It achieves up to 30% higher throughput than CFQ on hard disks with most parallel workloads, and about the same throughput with the rest of the workloads we have considered. BFQ achieves the same throughput as CFQ, NOOP, DEADLINE and SIO on SSDs.
