1. Adaptec SCSI driver on a 4 x P6 POCA blows up with timeout errors
then hard hangs machine.
2. DVD-RAM drive gets scsi timeout errors on AMD K6 System.
3. Cannot see the MASHITA RW-CDROM with ide-scsi loaded with patch.
4. 2.4.0 hard locks on dual processor PIII 400Mhz during kernel boot.


Well, I tried the patch. Looks like some SMP issues of some kind.
