ata7.00 is the optical drive choking up on media presence polling sequence.
"hal-disable-polling /dev/sr0" should work around the problem. ata3/4 are
maxtor drives choking on the SMART commands most likely from the new
libatasmart thing which is a newcomer in openSUSE 11.2.

For the first problem, unfortunately, disabling media presence polling is the
only workaround at this point. A long term solution is in the works and should
appear in the next release (or in the one after that).

Reportedly, there are some compatibility problems with the shipped version of
libatasmart and the developer says that newer version should fix this. I don't
know how to disable devkit SMART polling. Googling... okay you can disable it
by editing /lib/udev/rules.d/95-devkit-disks.rules and commenting out the

# ATA disks driven by libata
KERNEL=="sd*[!0-9]", ATTR{removable}=="0", ENV{ID_BUS}=="ata",
ENV{DEVTYPE}=="disk", IMPORT{program}="devkit-disks-probe-ata-smart $tempnode"

cc'ing Kay, changing component to basesystem and requesting reassignment.
