Subjectblk-7 fails to boot (against 2.4.0-test10)
Hi Jens.

I wanted to try out blk-7 to see if it cured the abysmal I/O
on 2.4.0-test10, but it won't boot on my system. The last message I
is the banner of the SCSI host adapter init (it found the card) but
never actually lists the devices on the host... weird place to crash
actually. I tried it twice, and waited about a minute each time for it
make progress.

In other words, this appears:

(scsi0) <Adaptec AHA-294X Ultra2 SCSI host adapter> found at PCI 0/11/0
(scsi0) Wide Channel, SCSI ID=7, 32/255 SCBs
(scsi0) Downloading sequencer code... 392 instructions downloaded
scsi0 : Adaptec AHA274x/284x/294x (EISA/VLB/PCI-Fast SCSI) 5.2.1/5.2.0
<Adaptec AHA-294X Ultra2 SCSI host adapter>

But it never makes it to:

(scsi0:0:0:0) Synchronous at 80.0 Mbyte/sec, offset 15.
Vendor: SEAGATE Model: ST39102LW Rev: 0006
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02
(scsi0:0:2:0) Synchronous at 80.0 Mbyte/sec, offset 31.
Vendor: IBM Model: DNES-318350W Rev: SA30
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 03

Does this ring a bell? I tried using SYSRQ and it shows the 'current'
as kapmd-idled and the showPc shows the PC at c01108ff ->
apm_bios_call_simple. Hmm.

I'll try any subsequent patch you can offer.

My system is a single processor Athlon 700, 256mb ram, 2.4.0-test10 plus

P.S. I added the #define ELEVATOR_MERGE_HOLE 3 like someone else
mentioned, and the patch applied cleanly except filemap.c which was
offset -20 lines.
