Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 91829
LTC2918-Adaptec aic79xx driver fails when removed
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:56 EST
Please fill in each of the sections below.
Dual processor SMP pentium III 1Ghz
Adaptec 39320D HBA version 4.00.0 firmware
Redhat Enterprise version 3 alpha 3 (and 2)
aic79xx version 1.3.0 for alpha 3 and 1.3.4 for alpha 2
Steps to Reproduce:
Random, usually locking up of the system, behavior consistant with resource
corruption. The module is removed, and sometimes is able to be reinstalled.
When this happens there's no indication that there's any issues, the attached
peripherals work and don't seem to have any contention issues.
Module removed with the system remaining functional.
It is not necessary to attach any devices to the SCSI chain, it is sufficient to
just install and remove the module.
Any update on this?
Bug was filed against both the wrong product and wrong component. Fixing.
The aic79xx driver is updated to rev. 1.3.10 in Taroon B1. (This driver is still
fairly new and has undergone quite a bit of change recently.) Please try the B1
kernel and let us know if this problem is fixed.

I've tested the 1.3.10 version that is in Taroon B1 and it seems to have fixed
the problem. Good job, thanks.
Closing out on own experience as well as confirmation from original reporter.
