Description Winfrid Tschiedel 2005-05-31 11:53:11 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
RedHat 9 Kernels use a very old version of aic79xx (1.0.0).
So until kernel 2.4.20-28.9 better driver versions were available
this was never a real problem.

Could you please use like fedora oder RedHat EL a more recent source 
of the aic79xx driver ( 1.3.10 or later ).

Thank you,


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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.making IO test on SCSI device using kernel 2.4.20-37.9 or later 
  ( default aic79xx )

Actual Results:  Depending on the disktyp ( manufacturer ) there maybe data corruption.

Expected Results:  No IO errors

Additional info:

Please built a kernel using aic79xx 1.3.11 or 2.0.10 ( or later )

This doesn't seem to be important enough to fix just on its own, so mark it DEFER.

Not a security issue.
