Subjectaacraid for 2.4.0
Many of you, specifically customers of Dell Computer have been asking about
the aacraid driver and the 2.4.0 kernel. Development is underway, however I
have run into a stumbling block and am not sure how to proceed. The driver
is generating a segmentation fault and produces and oops. I have included
that for your viewing pleasure. From the output of ksymoops, it appears to
be dying in AAC_AnnounceDriver. This plagues me because this function only
does two things. One is print the name of the driver and the date it was
built on. The other is call schedule(). Does anyone know why calling
schedule in the 2.4.x stream would cause me heartache? I've put in a bunch
of prints to see if I get past the announce routine, but I do not. Any ideas
or pointers from more experienced 2.4 porters is greatly appreciated. I'm
really cutting it down to the wire now. :-)
