Description of Problem:
Symbios SCSI driver in 2.4.3-12 times out under light load, eventually
causing a kernel panic.
Boot 2.4.3-12 on an Alpha with a Symbios 1000/1010 scsi controller.
Steps to Reproduce:
2. Run this little script (while true; do uptime; sleep 1;done)
Causes timeouts and eventualy kernel panic
Should keep running without trouble, 2.2.17 (with Symbios patch for
1000/1010 works fine).
single SCSI harddisk, this is the gold release of 7.1
I'll attach the log of its failure.
