Bug#355672: Boot hangs on SATA harddrive

Package: linux-image-2.6.15-1-686-smp
Version: 2.6.15-7

I'm using Debian testing on a Dell Optiplex GX280 desktop machine with
standard Debian kernel package of linux-image-2.6.12-1-686-smp. This
computer has a SATA hard drive which is handled by the kernel

I've installed linux-image-2.6.15-1-686-smp. The installation went
fine installing all the dependencies as well.
The boot process with this kernel is running smoothly up to the point
when after loading modules from the initial ramdisk the hard drive
should be accessed. This is a point when the process hangs. I suspect
the problem is related to loading the SATA modules.

The problem has been recognized by others as well, but I could not
find it in the list of reported bugs:
