    It should be interesting to have results using driver 3.0i and 3.1a on the
    same kernel version and configuration, for example:

    - linux-2.1.126 that has driver 3.0i
    - linux-2.1.126 patched for driver 3.1a

    Patch location:
    ftp://ftp.tux.org/pub/roudier/ncr53c8xx-3.0i-to-3.1a-for-linux-2.1.125.patch.gz

    And you may want to also compile the kernel using gcc-2.7.x if driver 3.1a
    has the timeout problem. If booting with tags disabled, asynchronous
    transfers, etc..., makes difference, this may also help find the cause
    of the problem.
