SubjectMPT fusion driver, better but still buggy at errors handling under 2.6
Date
MPT fusion driver under Linux 2.6 still fails to recover properly from tiny
SCSI troubles through doing reset then resend pending commands just like
any good Linux SCSI driver does transparently.

Here is the behaviour of MPT fusion driver I noticed on various Linux kernels:
2.4.xx recovers gracefully (only reading the kernel log will enable
to discover that a tiny problem did append).
2.6.xx xx <= 11, enters an infinit loop attempting to reset the SCSI
so the box gets unusable and requires a rough power cycle to recover.
2.6.12 untested.
2.6.13 puts the disk offline, so the box continues to run, but Linux
software RAID removed the disk. A software reboot is required
to get the disk back online, and a 'raidhotadd' will also be to get
the all service back online, also this is a remote server, and the
box did not came up after the remote sofware reboot request :-(

I reported this bug about Linux 2.6.5 on Fri, 23 Apr 2004,
about Linux 2.6.9 on Wed, 26 Jan 2005,
and the bug is still there.


Here is the 2.6.13 kernel console:
