I reloaded the new driver and rebuilt the kernel last night with the
TWA_FLASH_FIRMWARE, Did not see the -D on the command line for the
rebuild, the new firmware was not requested to load. I got the new
firmware from 3ware and flashed it in, Still does not work. I also build
a straight GENERIC Kernel, still no luck. Their is no error message that
I saw and the versions number for the pieces did change so it the "new"
stuff. I need to setup a serial console to capture the full messages,
should have that on monday night. Thank You -mjm
