Bug Description

We have a couple of Intel Server System SR1600UR that would make very nice ppa build machines for at least part of their time, except that we need working xen in an LTS kernel, which means they run hardy. The current hardy kernel lacks support for the ICH10 chipset used in these machines, and hence they boot without disks, making them less than usable.

Andy Whitcroft (apw) wrote :

A quick review of the differences between Maverick (where this device is correctly recognised) and Hardy seems to indicate that the IDC10 is basically an ICH8 in disquise. Later kernels simply map this device to the existing driver. The attached commit adds the IDs. Produced test kernels with this patch for testing.

As this is already supported in Maverick and later, moving the Linux task Fix Released.

The proposed patch gets a hearty +1 from me.

Andy's kernel successfully discovered the disk on the machines in question. Once we have this fix in a hardy kernel, we should be able to use these machines as PPA builders much of the time.

@lamont -- thanks, will push to the kernel-team list for review for SRU.

Accepted linux into hardy-proposed, the package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!
