Subjectaacraid for 2.4.0 revisitied
You folks seem to be interested in this, so I thought I might bother for a
bit of follow up.

I would like to start off by thanking each of you for responding. I guess I
got into the 2.4 game a bit late and haven't been on linux-kernel in quite a
while. If anyone has any ideas on what I'm doing wrong, I would appreciate

Both Russell and Keith seemed to think it was modutils. While this was
grossly out of date, it didn't solve the problem.

Andrew mentioned the __devinit and __devinitdata declarations. I'm not using
any of those, so I don't see a problem there. At least I'm not declaring

Andi seems to think it's jumping before the detect function. Wouldn't that
get called first by the OS to "detect" the hardware?

I've seen two different issues now. One when I get an interrupt which
reports the error bug in sched.c:698.

Trying to get past this and figure out if it's a problem with my isr or with
the scheduler I've disabled I/O in the driver. No I/Os No Interrupts...

I get another oops. I'm not very efficient at reading these messages. To bad
the oops-tracing.txt file isn't in a little more detail. It seems you have
to be quite knowledgeable of the inner workings of the Linux kernel to
understand them, but I digress.

Looks like it's dying trying to make the procfs entry. However comparing
what the aic7xxx driver is doing and what I am doing produced no fruitful

If I enable interrupts and the opps I mentioned above it produced, it is
worthwhile to mention that the kernel just keeps looping oops messages over
and over until it runs out of memory, each time reporting a bug in

Some things I have verified needed to be done have been done:
dev->base_address[foo] has been changed to dev->resource[foo].start

I'm using pci_enable_device (though I'm not sure I'm using it in the correct

not using cli/sti

It's been mentioned that the scsi proc has changed, but I don't see how it
effects me.

I've always allocated my irq using SA_SHIRQ and have never passed in a null
field for dev_id.
