Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2001-01-24 14:53:41 EST
Is this the old or the new aic7xxx driver?
Comment 2 Glen Foster 2001-01-24 19:40:52 EST
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Release-Candidate #1
Comment 3 Gene Czarcinski 2001-02-06 14:20:11 EST
I am also getting the oops .. with 2.4.0-0.99.23 from rawhide BUT i do not get
the problem when I run the beta3 (fisher) kernel 2.4.0-0.99.11.

Also, this only occurs with the smp kernel.  The up kernel boots fine.
Comment 4 Doug Ledford 2001-02-09 05:50:06 EST
This is a bug in the general mid layer SCSI code in dealing with driver init
sequences that take longer than one second.  This should be fixed in the latest
2.4.1-0.1 and later kernel builds by using the aic7xxx 5.2.3 driver instead of
the 6.1.0 driver which bypasses the new_eh_code which is the cause of the oops.
