Talk:How to hotswap Ultrabay devices
I recently tried using the libata-tj patch tarball for 220.127.116.11, applying this against the newly released 18.104.22.168 kernel (released today.) Patch applied cleanly. Upon boot, I immediately get a multitude of "weird" errors -- strange lockups, programs segmentation fault (running "top" resulted in a seg fault), and ultimately a hard lockup.
I booted back to my vanilla 22.214.171.124, ran fsck (appeared to just replay a few transactions, no major damage), and am back to normal. However, it successfully scared me off - unfortunately can't risk too much downtime (or worse, subtle fs corruption) right now on my main system. Anybody have experiences with this on a T43p using piix driver?

The 126.96.36.199 patch works fine on my T43. There's a git tree (mentioned on the patch's webpage) which is closer to 2.6.18, but AFAIK no simple unified patch was prepred.
