Typical example of the error message:
kernel: hde: dma_timer_expiry: dma status == 0x24
kernel: ALSA sound/core/pcm_native.c:1424: playback drain error (DMA or IRQ trouble?)
kernel: PDC202XX: Primary channel reset.
kernel: hde: DMA interrupt recovery
kernel: hde: lost interrupt
This was on a Promise TX2 133 ide card with one IDE disk. The problem
would show itself if using the RT patches and APIC. But the problem seems
to have been resolved now.
