SubjectAdaptec driver crashes (1/3 and 2/3)
Date
The easiest 100% reproducible way to crash a Linux system is as follows.

Insert either an Adaptec 1460 PCMCIA card or Adaptec 1480 CardBus card.
Remove the card. Insert the card again. Even if you knew to set the
console to a text mode terminal first (since Linux doesn't give Blue Screens
of Death otherwise), you still won't get a dump. Not much to go on without
a dump, but at least it's 100% repro.

It doesn't happen with a NinjaSCSI card. Insert card, access SCSI disk,
remove card, insert card again, access SCSI disk again, remove card, insert
again, no problem. So there's something about two Adaptec drivers.
