Comment 0 for bug 445852

In the Karmic beta I experience ssd stalls during the boot process. It happens almost everytime before xsplash loads and happens again frequently between logging into gdm and the desktop loading. When it happens during login I think it is making gnome time out on loading panel items as I get errors related to lots of panel items failing to load. If I log out and back in again when the ssd isn't stalled the panel items load fine.

When it happens the following messages appear before xplash (or in dmesg when it happens after gdm):

ata2: lost interrupt (Status 0x58)
ata2: drained 16384 bytes to clear DRQ.
ata2.00: exception Emask 0x0 SAct 0x0 SErr 0x0 action 0x6 frozen
ata2.00: BMDMA stat 0x4
ata2.00: cmd c8/00:40:cb:60:32/00:00:00:00:00/e0 tag 0 dma 32768 in
res 58/00:40:cb:60:32/00:00:00:00:00/e0 Emask 0x2 (HSM violation)
ata2.00: status: { DRDY DRQ }
ata2: soft resetting link
ata2.00: configured for UDMA/66
ata2: EH complete

I did not have this issue in jaunty with this hardware and I don't think it has happened once the system is fully loaded. I am running karmic unr on an Acer Aspire One netbook.
