Subjectaic7xxx 5.0.19 /dev/st0 problems?


I've got a dual Pent2 machine running 2.0.34 SMP with aic7xxx 5.0.19 and
my tape backups have been failing (with any tape) the last few days
without me noticing. I think they started failing after I upgraded the
aic7xxx driver (not sure). I popped in the cleaning-tape (can't hurt!),
but the kernel spun like a top loading the machine instantly to 9+ after I
did a "mt -f /dev/st0 status". I did some poking around on the news
groups, and there are some other people which are having similar problems
with their "/dev/st0" while using aic7xxx 5.0.19. (My tape drive is a
Sony SDX-S300C which worked fine for weeks after I got it under diferent
system configurations.)

Has anyone else run into this? Is there a fix? Is there a previous
release of aic7xxx which is nice and stable under 2.0.34 SMP?

Thanks!

Here are some logs on the topic (I hope this isn't overkill):
