Subjectqla2xxx hba crashes with older 2310 cards

I've seen some chatter about the qla2xxx driver but not paid attention, so
I'm sorry if this is a known issue. I've got an older qlogic hba, and recent
drivers don't seem to play nice with it. I've got the latest firmware from
qlogic's web site. I'm using a 2.6.21-rc6 kernel from Steve Whitehouse's
-nmw git tree. Reverting to an older driver (but same kernel) and it works.
The current driver gives this:

Starting udev: BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000000

The older driver that works properly gives this:

Is this a known problem, or is someone working to fix it?
