I can't reproduce this with 2.6.15 on an HP rx2600.

I tried both commands and both seem to work fine.
At least they didn't hang.
I suggest looking at firmware interaction problems.

I'm upgrading system firmware so I can upgrade to 2.6.16.
(SAL needs to be updated)
If the problem is reproducable on 2.6.16, I'll post again.
