[GIT PATCH] SCSI bug fix for 2.6.23-rc8

From: James Bottomley
Date: Tue Sep 25 2007 - 13:55:38 EST

This is, unfortunately, not a recent regression but it's only been
recently diagnosed. Apparently the SCSI Parallel transport class domain
validation cable width detection wasn't working, leading to cases where
controllers with damaged cables would end up hanging the system (the
reported one was an aic79xx controller, but the potential is there for
all SPI based systems). This bug would *only* affect systems whose
cable integrity or connectors were compromised, so it isn't life
threatening to every SCSI Parallel installation, but the consequence of
running into it is a system hang.

The fix is available here:


The short changelog is:

width setting
