Description of problem:
RedHat 9 Kernels use a very old version of aic79xx (1.0.0).
So until kernel 2.4.20-28.9 better driver versions were available
this was never a real problem.
Could you please use like fedora oder RedHat EL a more recent source
of the aic79xx driver ( 1.3.10 or later ).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.making IO test on SCSI device using kernel 2.4.20-37.9 or later
( default aic79xx )
Actual Results: Depending on the disktyp ( manufacturer ) there maybe data corruption.
Expected Results: No IO errors
Please built a kernel using aic79xx 1.3.11 or 2.0.10 ( or later )
This doesn't seem to be important enough to fix just on its own, so mark it DEFER.
Not a security issue.
