This is a copy of the output to dmesg
I am taking it.
ide-tape: Maximum supported speed in KBps - 4000
ide-tape: Continuous transfer limits in blocks - 0 <===== HUH?!
ide-tape: Current speed in KBps - 755
OK, device is broken, but it's not an excuse to oops.
I'll add a check or two to plug obvious holes where
the driver trusts the device microcode to return sane data.

In CVS now, but did not quite make it into 2.4.18-0.12,
so has to wait for the next release.
Built into 2.4.18-0.13
should be in beta4
Fix confirmed with 2.4.18-0.13 . . . I'm able to insert the module without any
