    SubjectRE: Bolck Device problem or Compaq Smart array 2 problem? kernel -2.4 .0+
    It comes back with a command prompt. trying a "simple command... ps, ls
    it does not return. The hard disks(hardware raid) light up. But it seems
    like noone is home.
    It doesn't oops in the 2.4.1-pre11 or 10.
    That is a good thing.

    Unusable how? Does it hang or oops? Does nmi and up/smp make any
    differences in 2.4.1-preXX?

    I did some fixes for cpq after the blk merge in 2.4.1-pre, and got
    reports that it works. However, I don't have the necessary hardware
    to test myself.
