But the ahc() driver -is- bug free. It's not bug free when it's running
on modified hardware, but it's fine when it's running with unmodded
Your complaint sounds somewhat like the guy who bought a 68 Mustang then
complained when he had to cut away the shock towers to fit in a 460
and headers, then complained more when the torque from his engine twisted
the frame of the car.
Your going to be told to stick your head up your ass as long as you keep
believing that your hardware and it's firmware has nothing to do with
the problem. Tens of thousands (probably more) of other people run
servers for years using aic7880 chipsets without seeing what your seeing.
Clearly, there is something in your hardware that is different from all
these other people and that FreeBSD doesn't work with.
Your controller is probably the most common narrow scsi controller in
use among people running FreeBSD production servers. Only the Symbiosis

are only running tapedrives and CD's. (since they were sold with no boot
