SubjectRe: file corruption in 2.4.16/17


Don't take the tone personally, it is directed at the primary kernel

Well I will promise you that it is not my driver! Additionally there has
been a private blanket test to authenticate it is doing the correct thing.
Now the legacy driver in the stock kernels have the ablitity to fail but
very rarely.

So I suggest you use a corrected driver found at

There will be an update for 2.4.17, but if you choose the use the legacy
driver and you have FSC, TOUGH! I have offered out a tested and domain
validated driver and nobody wants it.
