In the case of SCSI-IDE RAID arrays, many of which are of questionable
quality, this typically means that the device is not providing a valid
echo buffer size for performing domain validation. In this case, the
driver defaults to running at the maximum speed supported by the device,
but also prints out a diagnostic. I plan to remove the diagnostic for
the echo buffer issue since there seem to be lots of broken devices
out there.

Your RAID array only supports U160, so it only runs at that speed.
This has everything to do with the device, and nothing to do with the
aic79xx controller/driver.

As to the LUN issues, as already pointed out by others, it looks like
the report luns support in this device is broken. Perhaps the vendor
has a firmware update available.
