Thanks for helping.

The server is rp3440.

Os version B.11.11

Is this kernel patch is capable to install on Rp3440 ???

Re: vmunix: side_setup_drive_transfer_mode() Failed

If you read the page I pasted carefully it says

*************
when a device is not present on an IDE channel, random values might be read from the device registers. This causes the IDE driver to attempt to setup a non-existent drive. The setup either fails and a failure message is printed to the dmesg buffer or the setup works and a non-existent drive appears in the ioscan output.
************

Do you have any non-existent drive in ioscan?

So probably this would not harm your server, and yes it can be installed on your machine.
