    SubjectRE: HEADS UP for gdth driver users
    Hi Christoph,

    Attached you find a patch to remove the scsi_request interface from the
    gdth driver. The patch contains your first patch, the changes for
    removing the scsi_request interface and some changes to preserve the
    2.4.x compatibility.
    We tested it and it should work fine. It would be great if it could be
    integrated in the 2.6.18 cycle.

    Many thanks and Regards,

    Sorry, I didn't have time to look at this yet. scsi_get/put_command()
    sems ok for now, if you have time to look at this now it would be good
    if you could look at it. It's too late for 2.6.17 already, but having
    it early in the 2.6.18 cycle would be very helpful.
