"We know." It never has. (and arguablly never will.)

If "by hand" means with 'patch', then yes. Some people have no problem and
others commit suicide as a result of the process. (YMWV.) Getting the
DPT supplied driver to work in 2.3 will require some work -- spinlock
semantics and the scsi host structure changed.

I'm running a SRV in my system with 2.4.0-test5 right now, so it is doable.
