Description of problem:
3w-xxxx module inserts properly, but when fdisk wants to access a raid1
volume configured on escalade 6200 card, some error is printed and that the
array is then not available for any r/w operations, so RedHat cannot be
installed on it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. have a 3w escalade card in the system
2. configure a raid1 array on it
3. try to install redhat on it ...
Actual Results: the error:
3w-xxxx: tw_interrupt(): Bad response, status = 0xc1, flags = 0x11, unit =
3w-xxxx: tw_scsi_eh_reset(): Reset succeeded for card 1.
3w-xxxx: tw_interrupt(): Bad response, status = 0xc1, flags 0x11, unit 0x0.
scsi: device set offline - not ready or command retry failed after host

I/O error: dev 08:00, sector 19539040
get_last_sector ioctl: bread returned NULL.
Expected Results: I have 3ware cards in other systems but they don't boot
from them. I never had any problems with the 3w-xxxx module on various
kernels, so i see no reason that the module in the boot kernel doesn't
