Does this still fail in RHEL5.1? A fix was added to RHEL5.1 to prevent a 
panic within the sg driver when writing so I was wondering. I don't see a 
call trace of the panic so I can't compare it to the one found in the other
bugzilla. Hence my question.
Thanks for any feedback.

Thanks for the follow up.  The code in attachment 1 [details] and 2 does not panic under
RHEL 5.1 ... Thanks!
