In this particular instance the driver was aic7xxx_old, tested
because the current aic7xxx had been behaving identically.

The problem had not occurred when I tried aic7xxx as part of a
monolithic 2.4.5 and no initrd/modules.

The box is an IBM Netfinity 4500R with dual pentiums, ServeRAID 3L
adapter attaching three internal drives, internal SCSI adapter
disabled and IBM's Ultra 160 SCSI controller (Adaptec 29160) tested
with and without a drive attached.

Original system is RedHat 7.1 with fresh kernel 2.4.5 (for SMP) and
latest patch for ext3 applied. Booting was initially set to launch a
monolithic 2.4.5 kernel which boots with no problem. Then I tried it
2.4.5 from scratch with a fresh initrd and modules of scsi and
aic7xxx where it causes the panic described above.
