We have a bunch of SuperMicro 6013P-8+ boxes that had a lot of issues
under 5.x  I've been testing the 6.1-RC and am happy to report that
everthing is working fine.  Specifically, the scsi controller
resetting issues reported in:

Subject: FreeBSD 5.3p6-5.4RC3, Supermicro X6DHR-8G, Dual 3.6GHz Xeons,Adaptec
 aic7902 SCSI interface doesn't work in UP kernel

And the general lockups reported in:
Subject: SuperMicro X5DP8-G2MB/(2)XEON 2.4/1GB RAM 5.4-S Freeze
which required the ich-periodic-smm-disable.c program to be run
at startup

are both fixed.  6.1 looks to be a very solid release and our performance
and stability testing have been positive so far.

We'll continue to test with the new 6.1-RC2.  Thanks for everybody's
work on this.
