Description of problem:
Two SCSI stacks each connected to a AVA2906 (same machine). Boot up detect
correct. When copying large files (>50MB) after 70MB or so is transferred bus
reset request start occuring. Only coarse of action is hard boot (reset button).
If left unattended (2.5+ hours) system locks up hard complaining about an
interrupt. aic7xxx_old produces the same result. After replacement of first
AVA2906 with Tekram 315U no problem copying files on first SCSI stack to other
drives (IDI and SCSI:0) but not SCSI:1 (still AVA2906 controlled.)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Initiate (50MB+) cp or mv of a large file on a SCSI drive.

Actual Results:  Perpetual reset requests coupled with very slow system response.
Commands especially ls or df, executed in another shell hang for
an extended time before responding.

Expected Results:  Copy or move to successfully complete without complaint.

Should I simply upgrade to 7.3 and see if the problem goes away or becomes 64699?

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
