I believe that he would prefer that it get tested in the ac tree 1st.
Alan seemed receptive to including it, but he's not doing much with the
2.4 ac kernel any more.

PS- All you really need to do to update the driver is delete
drivers/scsi/aic7xxx, and replace it with the newer driver from Gibbs
site. Recompile and you are done.

There is no such thing as obsolete hardware.
Merely hardware that other people don't want.
