    After some heavy SYSRQ-P on boot-up during the Adaptec initialization,
    the driver appears to go into "__delay" just before it hangs. If Leszek
    could confirm this, it would probably help some.

    To clarify the situation, the driver hangs after it says "Detected 3
    SCSI Disks" or somethin like that (before it detects disk geometry).
