FreeBSD 5.1-CURRENT JPSNAP from 11-Jun-2003
FreeBSD 5.1-RELEASE is also affected by this bug

Compaq Proliant 1850R with Smart Array 221 Controller with 2 disks configured
as one logical volume
        Machines with ida(4) supported hard disk controllers will panic
        on boot in ida_construct_qcb() as GEOM starts inspecting the first
        disk on the ida controller.  Panic does not occur with ida(4) driver
        Last message before panic on verbose boot is:
        GEOM: new disk idad0
        DDB trace at panic shows:
        Panic is:
        Fatal trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode
        supervisor read, page not present
        pid is 4 (g_down)
        The panic occurs on ida_construct_qcb+0xca: movzbl 0x5c(%eax),%eax
        which looks very much like the spot where this function bzero()s
        the hardware qcb.
        This was previously reported on the current mailing list by
        Ventsislav Velkov <veno at> on 31 March 2003
        (Message-Id: <006401c2f776$d16f0230$23f00ad9 at beatle>) on similar
        Compaq hardware.  It is likely that this bug has existed
        at least since that time.

	(This is a correction to pending/53238 which was mangled by my
	mail client, sorry.)
        Attempt to boot 5.1-RELEASE or 5.1-CURRENT SNAP's (either floppy or
        CD) on systems with ida(4) supported hardware with at least one
        volume configured on the ida controller.
