    SubjectRe: PROBLEM: null pointer dereference in cfq dispatch requests (2.6.21-rc2 and 2.6.20)

    Actually, I believe it is happening to me too. This is on a 4-disk raid5 with
    one failed disk on two 2-port sata_sil pci controller cards.

    The BUG below is from, but I will try 2.6.21-rc4 tonight.
    The disk didn't fail until 2.6.20, so I don't know if 2.6.19 would have worked
    or not.
