Description of problem:
Some of the scsi drivers in this kernel package cannot be loaded.
After upgrading from update 2 to update 3 of kernel-smp package, boot
fails in a kernel panic when driver for the scsi controller fails to
So far this problem has been observed for 2 different scsi drivers,
aic7xxx and mpt.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

1.upgrade to latest kernel-smp rpm
Actual Results: System fails to boot -- panics after the attempt to
load scsi driver from ramdisk fails with unresolved symbol errors
Expected Results: System should still boot normally after kernel
The addon modules directory included earlier versions of the mpt

drivers in the main scsi driver tree.
