Description of problem:
The pcitable file in current hwdata still references "isp_mod" as the appropriate module for
a QLogic ISP1020 SCSI controller. This module was the "Feral" QLogic driver that was
included in Red Hat shipped kernels based on the 2.4 Linux kernel tree.
The module was never brought up to date to be included in the 2.6 kernel series, and is no
longer a valid option. The "qlogicisp" module, while probably not the best performing
option, should be substituted instead - at least it exists.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot system containing QLogic 1020 PCI SCSI controller
Simple patch attached, s/isp_mod/qlogicisp/ in "pcitable" will give the exact same

Patch against pcitable
However, there is another file named upgradelist which seems to
contain new names vs old names. In there qlogicisp is accociated
Still managed to trip up my system - can't recall the exact circumstances, but it was in the
course of working with a custom distro and Anaconda. Had to patch hwdata before it'd all
I figured the upgrade list to be exactly that - module translations for upgrades. Didn't
quite seem to get picked up in a "new install" context. I can back out my patch and try
narrow down the point it happens at, if that's not the expected behavior of the system.
But is there any point leaving it in there? Looks like the Feral driver is dead. I'd love to see
it come back, I must admit ...
Will be in in 0.131-1.
