SubjectPROBLEM: Endless list of SCSI-Partitions
Hi,

I'm not a kernel hacker - sorry if I overlooked something obvious :)

[1.] One line summary of the problem:

Endless list of SCSI-Partitions

[2.] Full description of the problem/report:

If I boot 2.4.0-test8 or above (I just checked test9-pre2), the
aic7xxx-driver shows me an endless list of found partitions - it looks
like:

Detected scsi disk sda at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
Detected scsi disk sdb at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
Detected scsi disk sdc at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
Detected scsi disk sdd at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
Detected scsi disk sde at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
Detected scsi disk sdf at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
[...]

2.4.0-test2 worked fine (though I couldn't get my GeForce256 working,
but that's another story).

Though I only tried it with a SMP-kernel, a "linux nosmp" on the
lilo-commandprompt had no effect. I tried it with and without "probe
all LUNs". The SCSI-driver is a module and loaded via initial ramdisk.

[3.] Keywords (i.e., modules, networking, kernel):

kernel, modules, scsi, initrd, aic7xxx

[4.] Kernel version (from /proc/version):

2.4.0-test9-pre2

[5.] Output of Oops.. message (if applicable) with symbolic information
resolved (see Documentation/oops-tracing.txt)

No Oops, it just won't continue to boot.

[6.] A small shell script or example program which triggers the
problem (if possible)

lilo :*)
