SubjectRe: BUG() in asm/pci.h:142 with 2.4.13 (cause found!)

The cause for my problems with crashing kernels when accessing the tape
drive were differences between the original external RAID that belongs
to the machine and a temporarily, nearly equal, RAID that we attached while
the original was send away for repair.
The temp. RAID was Ultra3 160 and /proc/scsi/aic7xxx/0 showed me a cur.
speed of 160 while the "old" and working one only did Ultra2 with 80Mbit/s.

I don't know if it's a hardware incompatibility or if the Linux kernel
drivers cannot handle this specific case.

The problem exists in 2.4.11-pre6, 2.4.13, 2.4.12-ac6 and 2.4.13 with
patched from axboa(?) and D. Miller.
