I have a dual p100 with a CMD640 so I'll test 2.4-ac or whatever you name it,
as soon as I get back from vacation (in two weeks) and I get another old disk
for this test machine. It behaves with 2.4 but loses a lot of interrupts with
2.5-MD (haven't tested after Jens got 2.4 forward port into 2.5).
