    In the course of trying to solve the problem, I did a bit of reading around...
    this message was the one that gave me an idea on how to fix it.

    The maintainer of the adaptec scsi driver is Justin Gibbs, who actually started
    writing the drivers for BSD, then handed the project over to Doug Ledford.
    Justin was recently employed by Adaptec to take the drivers back and re-write
    them. So it seems that Adaptec wants to support these drivers.

    I emailed Justin about the problems but so far I haven't heard back. I should
    probably mail to the linux kernel mailing list.
