SubjectRe: Aic7xxx and Aic79xx Driver Updates
First off, could you take a look at

I thought it was an sr problem, but it doesn't seem to show up on
anything other than adaptec controllers? Thanks.

The changes for this:

+#define AIC_LINUX_IRQRETURN_T irqreturn_t
+#define AIC_LINUX_IRQRETURN(ours) return (IRQ_RETVAL(ours))
+#define AIC_LINUX_IRQRETURN(ours) return

Are rather convoluted. Could you just remove the wrappering for 2.5?

-ahc_linux_select_queue_depth(struct Scsi_Host * host,
- Scsi_Device * scsi_devs)
+ahc_linux_select_queue_depth(struct Scsi_Host *host, Scsi_Device

select_queue_depth isn't a 2.5 interface anymore, why do you even still
need it?

This is entirely irrelevant to 2.5 as well.
