The ck804 code in the LB tree does not properly
initialize all SATA ports.
The situation is currently as follows for boards with 4 SATA ports:
* sata controller 0: both ports 100% dead (no drives detected)
* sata controller 1: port 0 ok; port 1 sees drive but times out when trying
to access it
Can you elaborate how you tested this?
Here's what I was able to test on the ASUS A8N-E. The ports are numbered 1-4
on the PCB, not sure how that maps to your numbers above. I used a 40 GB
SATA disk with 'IDE_DISK_POLL_DELAY = 1' in FILO as well as the 5
seconds spin-up delay patch from the wiki.
- Port 1, 2 don't work.
- Port 3: Works (hde in FILO), I can boot from the SATA disk.
- Port 4: Works (hdg in FILO), I can boot from the SATA disk.
No change in behaviour with your patch applied. Ports 1/2 broken, 3/4 work.
