Sorry for the delay.  It's a real drag when real life starts impeding on my

I assume I must dive into the new kernels.  Using Ben's development kernel
tree with  this information from aic7xxx.c  (can't find the damn version

I get this message for each scsi ID.  No drives are connected at all
 scsi2:0:0:0:  Attempting to queue an ABORT message
scsi2:0:0:0:    command already compeleted
7xxx_abort returns 8194

after 2 for this id then I get this message

device set offline- not ready of command retry failed after bus reset

I would like to stay with the stable device tree if possible, but I
