Description

frequently upon reboot I noticed this error since installing oi_151, although I noticed it on nexenta 3.1 as well:

Aug 28 17:30:56 amilo genunix: [ID 386595 kern.notice] ata_id_common: BUSY status 0xfe error 0x0

mostly twice.

I found the following g$$gle https://defect.opensolaris.org/bz/show_bug.cgi?format=multiple;id=2368

I tried changing ata.conf to the following:

#
# don't change these
#
device_type="ide";
flow_control="dmult";
queue="qfifo";
max_transfer=0x100;

# Enable dma
ata-options=0x1;

#
# for PIO performance upgrade - set block factor to 0x10
#
#drive0_block_factor=0x1;
#drive1_block_factor=0x1;
drive0_block_factor=0x10;
drive1_block_factor=0x10;
#
# some laptop systems require setting this flag
#
#timing_flags=0x0;
timing_flags=0x1;

so far seems ok, perhaps the defaults (like in many other areas) are not very good.

Well it appears "seems" was short lived, as this morning I get the message.. only once this time.
Apparently the timing_flags "workaround" is rather a misnomer.
