I have a problem with a kernel 2.6.10 (sources from debian) which
disable IRQ of my megraid (driver megaraid_mbox) on several servers
after days of work and several millions of interuptions.
When the IRQ is disable, the servers do that :
May 22 03:02:20 relternet-01 kernel: irq 17: nobody cared!
May 22 03:02:20 relternet-01 kernel: [__report_bad_irq+42/160]
May 22 03:02:20 relternet-01 kernel: [handle_IRQ_event+48/112]

May 22 03:02:20 relternet-01 kernel: [cpu_idle+59/80] cpu_idle+0x3b/0x50
May 22 03:02:20 relternet-01 kernel: handlers:
May 22 03:02:20 relternet-01 kernel: [pg0+944120576/1069794304]
May 22 03:02:20 relternet-01 kernel: Disabling IRQ #17
I haven't noticed something else curious on the servers.
hardware of these servers :
- bi Intel Xeon 2.4Ghz
- 4.5 GB of RAM
- MegaRaid SCSI 320-2 
The kernel use SMP, HT, high memory support 64GB, megaraid_mbox driver
(v220.127.116.11, in module with initrd until yesterday) and don't use preempt.
As I didn't find anything that match IRQ disable and megaraid under
internet, I have tried several ways :
- at the beginning, the IRQ of eth0 and megaraid was shared. I have
corrected this  but the problem is staying.
- I have try newer version of the kernel 2.6.9 to 2.6.10. No benefic
- I have try the boot option "acpi=ht". No benefic result.
- the firmeware of the megaraid has been upgraded (to the 1L37
version). No benefic result.
Since yesterday, I am trying, on all server which have the problem,
kernel 18.104.22.168 (source take kernel.org) with megaraid_mbox built-in
(v22.214.171.124) and with differents boot options on servers :
- "noirqdebug" and "acpi=ht"
- "noirqdebug" and "acpi=off"
I have this problem since I installed them few weeks ago with my new
FAI (Debian Fully autmatic Installation). I have a lot of difficulty for
solving the probleme because servers can run without problem one or two
weeks. These servers are not yet in production but still in tests of
charge; they should be in production in one or two weeks... if I find a
way to correct this problem !
Do you have any ideas of which way I can search ?
