Hi All,

I believe the support for Adaptec's AIC7901 is broken in 6-BETA2.
I had a Dell running with this Controller in RELENG_5 and in Current 
from June 7th.
Some detailed information:
ahd0 at pci2:14:0: class=0x010400 card=0x01681028 chip=0x808f9005 rev=0x10 
hdr=0x00
     vendor   = 'Adaptec Inc'
     device   = 'AIC-7901 Ultra320 HostRAID Controller'
     class    = mass storage
     subclass = RAID

uname as of my last running 6-CURRENT Kernel:
([mhettwer at siteop-8] <~>)$ uname -a
FreeBSD siteop-8.mobile.rz 6.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 6.0-CURRENT #0: Tue Jun 
7 15:30:11 CEST 2005 
root at siteop-8.mobile.rz:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  i386

The "boot -v" of 6-BETA2 bootonly stops with the following messages 
(written down by hand, since I had no serial access):

I'd really like continue testing FreeBSD 6 on this Dell Machine... but I 
have no IDE disks to boot from, and besides, FreeBSD was running before 
with the very same controller on this box ...

Is there any more information I could provide ?

best regards,
Marian
