I've had the same problem on an ide disk (hdb: Lost interrupt) with 129.
I thought it was my hdd very close to death, but after reading your bugs
report, it can be a bug. The drive is not an UDMA one, but it happens
when the disk was on load for a while. I have de-activated the DMA mode
in order to wait before buying a new disk, and it had not happened
again. I will try to re-activate it and make some tests.
