Agreed. But all what I see is that STABLE Linux kernel DOESN'T has working
driver for promise controller (including latest ac patches) for SEVERAL
MONTHS.
And as for now there is no any progress in fixing it. I don't blame on you,
or Alan,
or whoever else. All I have to suggest is to drop promise support in stable
kernel,
then rewrite/fix it in 2.5 tree... and then backport it to 2.4.

I don't want to make experiments in production environment anymore... And
it's
unfair to the rest of Linux users to keep broken drivers in stable kernel...
Because
nobody expects that stable kernel will rip your fs _daily_.
