I am one of those idiots that was ignorant (and broke) enough
to buy a motherboard with the UM888BF chipsets (PCI/VLB). I have
only been able to confirm one problem with writes from SCSI to IDE.
That was with a 2940UW. This was fatal to the controller in the
fact that it continued to corrupt data from the first time he tried
it (with a 2+ meg file). I ordered a Buslogic 948C and hope this
does not happen to me before I have the money to buy a new board.
Does any of the PCI Bridge fixes have any affect on this chip? Will
any of the future kernels address this problem?
