    The second time I didn't apply the patch so I don't think that was the
    case. It looks to me like the 2.1.36 has either 1.18e or 1.18f,

    #define SCSI_NCR_DRIVER_NAME "ncr53c8xx - revision 1.18f"
    (in ncr53c8xx.h),
    ** 16 April 1997, version 1.18e
    (in ncr53c8xx.c),

    I saw the second one first so I assumed it was 1.18e, that's why I tried
    the e->f patch and hit n to apply -R, so it shouldn't have made any
    difference. The second time (actually third, but I'm not counting), I
    started with a fresh 2.1.36 and only applied the root inode patch as
    mentioned earlier.
