via82cxxx disables DMA on Asrock 775Dual-VSTA

Bug #56823 reported by Rob Fargher on 2006-08-18
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
linux-source-2.6.15 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: linux-image-2.6-686

This is a feature request.

  Some mainboards (e.g. my Asrock 775Dual-VSTA) come with a
PCI_DEVICE_ID_VIA_82C586_1 IDE controller together with a VIA VT8237A
southbridge. While the corresponding PCI ID is already present in pci_ids.h, the via82cxxx driver doesn't know about it yet and disables DMA.

  There has been a kernel patch submitted for 2.6.18_rc4 at I'm requesting that it be integrated into the Dapper kernel.
