    SubjectRe: [2.3.99pre2] [CORRUPTION] Doh! Corruption problems again...

    PLease repeat on SCSI-SCSI, SCSI-IDE and IDE-SCSI.
    There has been nothing in the driver that has change as it relates to IO.
    I want to know if it is true for the subsystem or of it is changes in the
    ./fs/* code.........

    ATA has 512-byte block sizes.
