Description of problem:
ips.ko driver fails to load on IBM 7025-F50 equipped with IBM ServeRAID 4H 4-
channel Ultra3 SCSI RAID controller. Following recorded in dmesg:
PCI: Enabling device 0001:40:0c.0 (0140 -> 0143)
 0:0:4:0: Attached scsi generic sg0 type 5
sd 1:0:8:0: Attached scsi generic sg1 type 0

ips 0001:40:0c.0: Unable to initialize controller
ips: probe of 0001:40:0c.0 failed with error -1

When I try to do 'modprobe ips' manually after system boot, different error is 
logged in dmesg:
[1st try]
ips 0001:40:0c.0: Couldn't allocate IO space feffe800 len 256.
ips: probe of 0001:40:0c.0 failed with error -1

ips: probe of 0001:40:0c.0 failed with error -1

Controller particulars (lspci -v):

Additional info: This does not seem to be pure hardware problem. When I boot 
IBM AIX operating system on the machine everything works fine, no errors.
