    2.6.10 ide umount fails


    Hi,
    After card eject if I do a umount for a ide device, i see the following

    hdc: status timeout: status=0xff { Busy }

    ide: failed opcode was: unknown
    hdc: drive not ready for command
    hdc: status timeout: status=0xff { Busy }

    ide: failed opcode was: unknown
    hdc: drive not ready for command
    end_request: I/O error, dev hdc, sector 64
    Buffer I/O error on device hdc1, logical block 1
    lost page write due to I/O error on hdc1



    If I do a umount while the card is present, it works ok. Please let me know what you think.

    Regards,
    CPK

    Normally, you can only umount a device that is still present. (Sometimes you might get problems to stop a device from being busy in order to umount it.)

    But removed devices can't be umounted.

    Maybe newer software hides this behaviour the same way as Windows does and even cleans up the zombied entries, but from the perspective of the mount/umount command it is ok what you are seeing as the mount command is from a time where detachable devices were rare and uncommon.
    Bus Error: Passengers dumped. Hech gap yo'q.
