This was a snapshot of the CVS tree in between -pre merging.
It was never really tested that much AFAIK.
The .rej's themselves are easy to mend, except for buffer.c, in which I
can't find a likely referant for the failed block. And in any case
compilation of the result fails in aic7xxx!
See FAQ. This is not related to the XFS patch.
So I would guess random other patches have been applied. Fair 'nuff.
Just give me a clue what they are! Moving the 2.4.5 aic7xxx_reg.h
across almost does the trick, but not quite. aic7xxx_seq.h is also
needed. That seems to fix it. But what happened?
The FAQ has a nic entry for this.
Every program has two purposes one for which
it was written and another for which it wasn't
I use the last kind.
