SubjectRe: PERCRAID 3 drivers?

As a matter of fact I already have such a kernel compiled but I need to be
there in person to make sure it doesn't blow up. :)

There were four files:


The only part of the patchs that caused a reject with 2.2.17 was this:

--- linux/drivers/scsi/scsi.c.aacraid Tue Jun 13 12:52:09 2000
+++ linux/drivers/scsi/scsi.c Tue Jun 13 12:52:42 2000
@@ -307,6 +307,8 @@
{"iomega","jaz 1GB","J.86", BLIST_NOTQ | BLIST_NOLUN},
+{"HP", "NetRAID-4M", "*", BLIST_FORCELUN},
{"MegaRAID", "LD", "*", BLIST_FORCELUN},
* Must be at end of list...
Easily addable by hand.

Though I am concerned about the KNOWNBUGS file that was in the 1.0.3 patch
but was removed by the later version patches. It seems to indicate its a
bad idea to compile it directly in the kernel. Is it better to compile it
as a module?

Thanks for your time...
