Well, the fact that it didn't work when compiled into the kernel means
(for me), that it doesn't work at all.
Also, if you followed the other thread on the Tyan Thunder lockup,
you'll have noticed that it locked up under heavy PCI loads. At least on
that machine it stopped with the 2.4.8 driver.
Does the new driver not work for you? There seems to be a bug at close()
time, in that the driver uses "tasklet_unlock_wait()" instead of
"tasklet_kill()" to kill the tasklets, and that wouldn't work reliably.
Anything else you can find?
