ata2 slow respond at boot


Hi,
I got a long start up sequence (around 2 min) at boot.
I dig into the log file and got the follow:
....
<4>ata2: port is slow to respond, please be patient (Status 0xff)
<3>ata2: port failed to respond (30 secs, Status 0xff)
<3>ata2: SRST failed (status 0xFF)
<3>ata2: SRST failed (err_mask=0x100)
<4>ata2: softreset failed, retrying in 5 secs
<3>ata2: SRST failed (status 0xFF)
<3>ata2: SRST failed (err_mask=0x100)
<4>ata2: softreset failed, retrying in 5 secs
<3>ata2: SRST failed (status 0xFF)
<3>ata2: SRST failed (err_mask=0x100)
<3>ata2: reset failed, giving up
....
in this way the system blow up around 1 min checking for something I cannot understand.
The system afterward boot perfectly without any single problem.
Is there a way to disable this check? Is some bugs in the code?

openSuse 10.2 on DEll 5000, 2 HD Sata, 1Gb ram, DVD, PIV 3.2Ghz


Thanks for the help
Luca

Same problem

I am having the same problem on one system, causing a delay during boot. My extract from dmesg:

ata2: port is slow to respond, please be patient
ata2: port failed to respond (30 secs)
ata2: SRST failed (status 0xFF)
ata2: SRST failed (err_mask=0x100)
ata2: softreset failed, retrying in 5 secs
ata2: SRST failed (status 0xFF)
ata2: SRST failed (err_mask=0x100)
ata2: softreset failed, retrying in 5 secs
ata2: SRST failed (status 0xFF)
ata2: SRST failed (err_mask=0x100)
ata2: reset failed, giving up
Vendor: ATA Model: WDC WD1600JS-75N Rev: 10.0
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 05

System:
Dell Optiplex GX520

Kernel:
2.6.18-1.2869.fc6 #1 SMP Wed Dec 20 14:51:46 EST 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Another interesting thing is that is started after a kernel upgrade (only I no longer remember between which versions). I upgraded to FC6 since but the problem remained.
