    This is a puzzling report. I wouldn't recommend that anyone use tcq in
    2.5 actually, since even I do not know what state it is currently in. I
    would seriously recommend 2.4 + tcq patches instead.

    That said, are your disks completely dead now? As in they do not work
    with a regular 2.4 kernel anymore?!
