just read up on my linux-kernel mail.
The scsi problem I have is a known issue is test8 because they seem to be
busy reworking scsi
The scsi routines had an overhaul that wasn't completely fixed in test8.
The IDE code is also broken in test8 with regard to bus mastering DMA....
shame shame shame.
I got a $600 drive and its slower then my old maxtor ;-(
They fixed some of those issues in test9-pre7.
The only problems you get VM deadlocks for it in return.
"Have you gone mad?"
"Well, yes, but that's beyond the scope of this email."
