Package: linux-image-2.6.12-1-686-smp
Version: 2.6.12-1
Severity: important

My machine freezes occationally for several seconds, with
dma_timer_expiry  messages being printed to /var/log/messages:

Apr  6 09:47:33 localhost kernel: hda: dma_timer_expiry: dma status == 0x21
Apr  6 09:47:44 localhost kernel: hda: DMA timeout error
Apr  6 09:47:44 localhost kernel: hda: dma timeout error: status=0xd0 {
Busy }
Apr  6 09:47:44 localhost kernel:
Apr  6 09:47:44 localhost kernel: hda: DMA disabled
Apr  6 09:47:44 localhost kernel: ide0: reset: success

The error occurs about once a day on my current kernel and
with linux-image-2.6.11 non-smp.

With 2.6.9 and .10 kernels, I got this problem much more frequently --
right  *past* the point where I give up working on the machine.

This problem is also described here:

I have a Dell Inspiron 500m with a ICH4 controller:

ok cool, closing bug report.
thanks for your feedback.
