SubjectHard lock with Raid 0.90 on buslogic flashpoint SCSI card

I hope this is going to the right list/group/etc, as I got this email
address from someone on #kernelnewbies...

Attempting to mkraid /dev/md0 a raid5 array using a Buslogic Flashpoint
fast SCSI PCI card will always hard lock the system at exactly 2% complete.
There is no oops or log, and it's a total lockup. I can't even switch
virtual terminals when it locks. Using an AHA-2940UW in place of the
buslogic works perfectly.

This is using kernel 2.2.17 with the raid 0.90 B0 patch which applied
cleanly. I was wondering if it was raid, but since the 2940 worked, I
started to wonder about the Buslogic card driver maybe.

root@userhost:~# cat /proc/mdstat
Personalities : [linear] [raid0] [raid1] [raid5]
read_ahead 1024 sectors
md0 : active raid5 sdd1[2] sdc1[1] sdb1[0] 4185856 blocks level 5, 4k chunk,
orithm 0 [3/3] [UUU] resync=68% finish=17.8min
unused devices: <none>

A cut-and-paste of the rebuild in progress. It completed normally and
was usable after that on the 2940. I will test any other variations of
tests I can think of and give the results.

Any information on even how I can troubleshoot this further would be
