Date: Mon Oct 09 2000 - 01:27:55 EST

[1.] One line summary of the problem:
     Can't boot compaq proliant 7000 with 2.4.0-test9

[2.] Full description of the problem/report:
     I upgraded kernel version 2.2.12(redhat 6.0) to 2.4.0-test9.
     It was only kernel upgrade.
     Can't boot compaq proliant 7000 (Intel P-III 500Mhz Xeon * 4CPU, RAM 1GB)
     It uses Compaq SMART ARRAY-3100ES raid controller.

     But my proliant 7000 system had no problem with Linux kernel 2.2.12.

[3.] Keywords (i.e., modules, networking, kernel):
     cpqarray bootfailure

[4.] Kernel version (from /proc/version): 2.4.0-test9

[5.] Output of Oops.. message (if applicable) with symbolic information
     resolved (see Documentation/oops-tracing.txt)
     Compaq Smart Array start sequence.
     (... ...)
          <= infinite waiting with this message line.
             maybe hang in getting partition information

[6.] A small shell script or example program which triggers the
     problem (if possible)

[7.] Environment
      Compaq Proliant 7000
       Intel Pentium III 500Mhz Xeon 4Way,
       Compaq Smart Array 3100ES,
