Subjectaic7xxx error
Hi folks!

There always have been problems with the SCSI subsystem of my server (dual
PIII 450) since I upgraded to 2.4. Exchanging the disk didn't help. I get
errors from SCSI about once a week, last time the disks were unaccessable
(sysrq-sync/umount printed on the console, but didn't touch the disks).
This time I was lucky enough to capture the error message, but I am not
skilled enough to decode its meaning:

The upper layer (scp to a reiserfs partition) apparently didn't see an
error, but this I don't know for sure. Here's the output of
/proc/scsi/aic7xxx/1:

The other IDs are unused.

Now my question? What actually did happen to cause this error? Is it
hardware-related? _May_ it be caused by faulty RAM? Could this go away by
switching to aic7xxx_old or another version of aic7xxx?

Kernel is 2.4.6 vanilla, compiled with gcc3.0.1.

Thanks for your answers,
Roland
