Kernel 2.2.5-15 panics when probing AHA 2940U2W

Kernel-2.2.5-15 (the default included with RH6) panics
on bootup as it tries to probe my SCSI controller (an
Adaptect AHA 2940U2W) for devices. If I disconnect all
devices from the SCSI board, the kernel boots successfully.
Turns out that RedHat's kernel packages include v5.1.15 of
the aic7xxx patch. Installing the kernel SRPM, replacing
this version with v5.1.16 of the same patch, and rebuilding
the kernel fixed the problem. It'd be *awful* nice if you
could incorporate this newer patch version into the standard
Should be there in 2.2.5-22 available on the updates site.
