SubjectRe: With Daniel Phillips Patch (was: aic7xxx with 2.4.9 on 7899P)

cool, it now compiles, runs and doesn't crash while running bonnie++
like it did before. I've told my users to beat at it. if it crashes
or continues to get bad disk performance i'm sure the list will hear
from me. Hopefully I'll be able to test more changes if they need
testing.
