Description Göran Uddeborg 2005-11-12 16:48:45 UTC
Description of problem:
The kernel panics on bootup when loading aic7xxx.  If I restrict memory to 3 GB
(parameter men=3G) it comes up fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot

Additional info:
This is very similar to bug 167049.  It is not identical.  Before the SCSI
driver found units that were not there, now it gets a panic.  But the problem
appears at the same stage during boot, and it is sensitive to the fourth GB of
memory in the same way.

It looks like 2.6.15 solved this problem.  It works now.
