Re: 2.6.8 -> 2.6.11 (+ata-dev patch) -- HDD is always on

Damn me - sorry for the misinformation... I've compiled the kernel
without Debian-loved initrd image...

so I've booted -- LED light is on - so I bet no blame on libata
patch, although I've mentioned few patches from that patch migrated into
the mainstream kernel.

Any ideas on which next step to take? 2.6.13-rc4? or vanilla 2.6.11?
