Mainly the v4 patch, but an it-works test on 2.6.22-rc3 just for
sanity's sake would be useful as well.

If you have time, check both new and old drives with SMART
smartctl -d ata -t long /dev/blahblah

to make sure the extended tests don't find anything wrong. Extended
tests usually take 30-90 minutes. You can access the hard drive while
the extended test is running, but I/O will be slower for obvious reasons.
