Default Bug#518812: I/O errors with 3w-xxxx and 8Gb ram

Package: linux-image-2.6.26-1-amd64
Version: 2.6.26-13
Severity: critical

I am experiencing I/O errors on various hosts equipped with a
3ware raid controller, 8 GB RAM and running a 2.6.26 Linux kernel.

Example (the same for many system files and commands):

# /sbin/halt
-bash: /sbin/halt: Input/output error

At http://www.3ware.com/KB/article.aspx?id=15243&cNode=6I1C6S I read
that "you should not use the 7000/8000 series in kernel driver 3w-xxxx
if you are using Linux kernels 2.6.15 through 2.6.22.". I couldn't
understand which driver version is affected by this problem.

At https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=451945 it is said that
upgrading the driver version to 1.26.03 fixed this bug among others.

Is it possible that the 1.26.02.002 driver currently used in the
2.6.26 Debian kernel package is still affected by this bug?

I attach some details, if any further needed I'll be happy to provide
it upon request.

Hi,
The next release of Debian (6.0, code name Squeeze) will be based
on 2.6.32. Please test the current 2.6.32 from unstable/testing and tell
us whether the problem persists. If so, we should report it upstream
to the kernel.org developers.

The 2.6.32 kernel is available from packages.debian.org and can
be installed in both Debian stable, testing and unstable
installations.

Thanks,
Moritz

Hello,

I tested the 2.6.32 kernel from unstable as suggested, while at the
moment I am running linux-image-2.6.32-bpo.3-amd64 from backports: both
kernels work fine, even if the device driver version shown by dmesg
is still 1.26.02.002.


Best regards
