:( It seems there are silicon revisions of the apple sungem that produce
broken checksums. This is what we were worried about, we'll probably
submit a patch soon that removes the checksum checking, then it'll
behave more like < 2.6.9-pre1

In the meantime you can use the patch below that simply comments that
code out. It's not diffed against 2.6.9 but should apply anyway.

Would be great if you could report a 'Yay' or 'Nay' on your success with
this patch.
