SubjectRe: 2.5.70-mm8
Just to let you know I finally got 2.5.70-mm8 running on my system a few 
hours ago, but it has been stable ever since. I started with 2.5.70-mm8
and the fix for the AS elevator causing X problems but that would boot.
I then tried every version of the AS fix but none of them seemed to
work for me. Then I tried backing out pci-init-ordering-fix.patch and
that did the trick. My system was hanging when it would poll the SCSI
busses in my box. I have an external 29160N from Adaptec and dual
onboard Adaptec U160 ports (39160 equivalent). As soon as the add on
card would get polled it would print one of the "Anticipatory Scheduler"
messages and then would hang. With the pci patch reverted I can boot up
and use -mm8, btw, when will the elevator selection messages either go
away or get limited to a couple of times per boot. When you have 3 SCSI
busses it ends up being quite a few messages :-). Thanks.
