File systems corrupting on SIL0680 cards


I'm out of ideas on how to fix this, so I'm hoping someone can help.

I'm getting a courrupted file system on a harddrive on a PCI IDE controller. I have a RedHet 9.0 system with 4 HDDs a DVD-R burner and a DVD-ROM drive. Each is on it's own IDE channel. One HDD is on the primary IDE channel on the motherboard(nFore2). Another is on the secondary IDE channel on the MB. Another is on a SII0680 PCI IDE card's primary channel. The last is on the secondary of this card. The DVD-R is on the primary of a second identical SII0680 card. The DVD-ROM is on the secondary.

The HDDs on the MB controller work fine. The HDDs on the PCI cards get file system corruption very quickly. I can demonstrate this by formating a drive, copying 30gigs from another drive on to it, and then fsck'ing the drive. It fails every time. The other HDDs have never had file system problems.

I have tried the drive on the MB's controller, and it worked fine. I've also used SMART to check the drive, health comes up okay, scans turn up nothing. Not even a sector reallocated.

I've tried flipping the controller the DVD drives are on with the HDD one. I've tried a couple different 80w IDE controllers. I've tried switching from udma5 to udma2. I've tried upgrading the kernel from 2.4.27 to 2.4.29. The 2.4.29 kernel didn't have drivers installed for my video card(nvida) nor my capture card(ivtv). The 2.4.27 kernel did. The kernels are compiled with SIIMAGE.

I'm running out of ideas. Does anyone know what could be wrong? Could anyone recommend a good 4 channel expansion solution(multiple cards are okay, I'd like to avoid RAID cards, as they add a lot of $$$)


On a slightly side note, what does "SiI680: not 100% native mode: will probe irqs late" mean? I get it on the nforce controller too, and I've googled a lot of people that run fine with it, so I presume it's not the problem, just curious what it means.

Some logs follow from the system booted with the 2.4.27 kernel which has the ivtv and nvidia drivers loaded, The one drive from the secondary motherboard channel is unplugged.

Silicon Image Ide controllers should use the CMD640 chipset.
I'd try configuring the kernel in the IDE section as follows:

CONFIG_BLK_DEV_CMD640=y --------------------------------------------------> this
# CONFIG_BLK_DEV_CMD640_ENHANCED is not set
# CONFIG_BLK_DEV_ISAPNP is not set
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDEPCI=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_GENERIC=y
CONFIG_IDEPCI_SHARE_IRQ=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDEDMA_PCI=y
# CONFIG_BLK_DEV_OFFBOARD is not set
# CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDEDMA_FORCED is not set
CONFIG_IDEDMA_PCI_AUTO=y
# CONFIG_IDEDMA_ONLYDISK is not set
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDEDMA=y
# CONFIG_IDEDMA_PCI_WIP is not set
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_ADMA100=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_AEC62XX=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_ALI15X3=y
# CONFIG_WDC_ALI15X3 is not set
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_AMD74XX=y
# CONFIG_AMD74XX_OVERRIDE is not set
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_ATIIXP=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_CMD64X=y -------------------------------------------------this
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_TRIFLEX=y
# CONFIG_BLK_DEV_CY82C693 is not set
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_CS5530=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_HPT34X=y
# CONFIG_HPT34X_AUTODMA is not set
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_HPT366=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_PIIX=y
# CONFIG_BLK_DEV_NS87415 is not set
# CONFIG_BLK_DEV_OPTI621 is not set
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_PDC202XX_OLD=y
# CONFIG_PDC202XX_BURST is not set
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_PDC202XX_NEW=y
# CONFIG_PDC202XX_FORCE is not set
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_RZ1000=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SC1200=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SVWKS=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SIIMAGE=y ---------------------------------------------- This shouldn't be necessary (I have on the same box a 2.6 kernel working fine with this module commented
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SIS5513=y
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SLC90E66=y
# CONFIG_BLK_DEV_TRM290 is not set
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_VIA82CXXX=y
CONFIG_IDE_CHIPSETS=y
This .config file comes from the Slackware 2.4.26 standard kernel.
I have the same PCI IDE controller on an asus P4PE mobo working fine with this configuration. You can comment out the lines you do not need of course. I'd check the IDE cables as well trying a good quality one (with triple wiring), if you already do not have one.
Hope this helps
Ciao.

The SII0680 is supported by the SIIMAGE according to the documentation. The Other Silicon Image driver is for the SII 64[3459] chips.

I just tried adding those options anyway, without sucess. I also tried compiling the SIIMAGE as a module instead of into the kernel. I also tried removing one of the cards to see if it was a two-card issue.

Seems others are having this issue, but no one knows the answer, yet the card is suppose to be supported. Any ideas
?

I think I solved the problem. I read in the driver code siimage.c to update the BIOS if I had trouble with the drive on an nvidia chipset motherboard. I updated the motherboard BIOS, and everything seems to be working. Transfers take much longer, I think it just wasn't writting data out before. I'm still trying to locate a BIOS for the card.
