A problem exists in the HPT372 driver probably, which causes unconsistency
while reading/writing large files (500M+?) off of RAID1 array. When 
reading/writing from/to a single disk connected to the very same controller 
(degraded array), everything works fine.

Tested on several KD7-RAID boards from Abit, with different disks.
