    You are hereby invited to debug the DAC960 driver. Making the needed
    changes only took a few hours to get it to the point where it initializes,
    now it oopses in the interrupt handler, because I did the bio part wrong.
    Of course, you might not make any mistakes, but you probably will, so get
    ready with your printks. It's going to take you a while, I can assure
    you.

    I flat out refuse to do this without kgdb.
