I've seen that error a few times now with the new code in 2.2.19. I
don't have a fix for it at this time (and I probably won't since
development on that driver isn't a 'regular' thing at this point). If
the old driver in 2.2.18 worked for you, then I would copy the aic7xxx*
files from 2.2.18 into 2.2.19 and rebuild your kernel.
