  [Dell Dimension 2400] IRQ conflict with pci sata vt6421 with two hard

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  My computer hangs when booting because of a irq conflict. I have a PCI
  adapter for SATA drives with sata and usb ports with VT6421 chipset.
  When I boot up with two HD in the sata ports the system behaves badly.
  Most of the time it hangs (3 over 4 tries) in the 2 first seconds. I
  have tried the options in the irq debug guide but it does not help.

  WORKAROUND: When I put only one HD then the system is OK.
