I'll just add a big ack for these two patches. I have been using these extensively now for a couple
of weeks on a 14 drive array spread over 12 Maxtor Drives on Promise SATA150TX4 Controllers and 1
WD2500BB on a VIA controller by way of an SIL PATA->SATA bridge polling all drives hourly for full
SMART stats and running daily self tests while also testing heavy drive usage patterns and manual
SMART polling and have not encountered any data corruption.

Read that as "I have tried really, really hard to break it and as yet been unable to".

Regards,
Brad
