Hello all,

I have powerpc system with compactflash card connected over ata. On this system is running process using raw socket to send and receive cyclic data each 4ms. When I start another iptraffic - sshftp - to write to compact flash, after certain time the IRQ-135 of ata driver locks task irqs from network card for cca 300ms. And my cyclic data transfer is broken. Any idea how to solve this problem?

Thanks a lot for hint. Jan
