    Subject2.0.30 and the aic7xxx driver
    I kept having troubles with the aic7xxx driver in stock 2.0.30.
    One machine kept getting frequent kernel stack corruption messages.
    I needn't tell you how stable the machine was.

    Dan Eischen, deischen@iworks.InterWorks.org, the author of the
    aic7xxx driver, also recommends not to use stock 2.0.30 aic7xxx
    driver. He instead pointed me to his "July27" driver,
    available from ftp://ftp.pcnet.com/users/eischen/Linux/July27/
    (mail me if you want it in unified diff format)

    I installed this driver release, and the problems are gone ever since,
    the machine is running stable again. It also cured random hard locks
    on a friend's machine (dg2fef@afthd.th-darmstadt.de) when serving
    with Samba. On two other machines (btw. all having an Adaptec
    2940) it also performed very well.

    I couldn't test exotic SCSI hardware, I only used it with
    SCSI disks (removable and fixed), CDROM drives and a CD Writer.

    I'd like the July27 driver to be part of 2.0.31...

    Tom
