I've just hit this bug on lenny (package linux-image-2.6.26-2-686
version 2.6.26-19lenny2).

To work around the bug and allow loading of the floppy module I needed
to use pnpacpi=off instead of pnpbios=off (I don't know if this is
different due to my hardware having ACPI or due to the kernel).

I've also found that this bug was discussed on the Linux-Kernel
mailing list in Jan/Feb 2009 (see http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/1/31/162 ).
A fix was made and checked into the kernel on 2009-02-18
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-2.6.29.y.git;a=patch;h=5a74db06cc8d36a325913aa4968 ae169f997a466

This patch can be applied to package linux-source-2.6.26 version
2.6.26-19lenny2. Patching produced warnings due other modifications
between 2.6.26 and 2.6.29 as follows
patching file drivers/block/floppy.c
Hunk #1 succeeded at 551 (offset -7 lines).
Hunk #2 succeeded at 4275 (offset -1 lines).
Hunk #3 succeeded at 4284 (offset -1 lines).
Hunk #4 succeeded at 4357 (offset -1 lines).
Hunk #5 succeeded at 4439 (offset -1 lines).
Hunk #6 succeeded at 4462 (offset -1 lines).
Hunk #7 succeeded at 4527 (offset -1 lines).
The patched floppy module then loads without needing pnpacpi=off

Hi!

I personally haven't experienced this bug for a very long time (but
take into account that I no longer have that old Pentium machine where
I originally hit it).

I hope nobody objects, if I set Bruce as submitter of this bug report...

Bye.
