    Let me first point out, I have no official connection to the writing of
    this driver. It's a big company :) I'm most interested in this because
    I have an old ServeRAID card at home.

    I know that none of the real authors is actively working on fixing this.
    Can this be accepted as a band-aid until the maintainers decide to
    maintain a 2.5 driver, or are we pushing authors to rewrite drivers
    which don't use the new DMA scheme?
