    SubjectRe: PERCRAID 3 drivers?

    As a matter of fact I already have such a kernel compiled but I need to be
    there in person to make sure it doesn't blow up. :)

    There were four files:

    linux-2.2.16-aacraid-1.0.3.patch
    linux-2.2.16-aacraid-1.0.3-paths.patch
    linux-2.2.16-aacraid-1.0.4.patch
    linux-2.2.16-aacraid-1.0.5.patch

    The only part of the patchs that caused a reject with 2.2.17 was this:

    --- linux/drivers/scsi/scsi.c.aacraid Tue Jun 13 12:52:09 2000
    +++ linux/drivers/scsi/scsi.c Tue Jun 13 12:52:42 2000

    Easily addable by hand.

    Though I am concerned about the KNOWNBUGS file that was in the 1.0.3 patch
    but was removed by the later version patches. It seems to indicate its a
    bad idea to compile it directly in the kernel. Is it better to compile it
    as a module?

    Thanks for your time...
