SubjectRe: SiI3112 DMA? (2.6.0-test6)
From
So SiImage is cooperating with you on getting the SATA driver right? I've
been holding out on updating the kernel (I could probably extract the
driver
diffs, but whatever) since experiencing data corruption/lockups on my
SiImage
controller. If we can expect reliable, fast performance with this
controller soon, thats great news : )
Regards
