can you elaborate on what the symptoms would be before this commit for 
the 6Bg cards? i have a dual channel LSI card (i can get the exact model 
tomorrow) connected to a RAID Inc Maverick 8 disk array (one raid6 
volume was created on the Mav) which constantly gets hung up with 
messages similar to:

run_interrupt_driven_hooks - waiting for xpt_config

every 60 seconds for about 5 iterations after which the box reboots. I 
am currently trying 9-RELEASE, but saw the same issues on 8.2. These 
messages happen after the USB stack initializes. Turning off the 
Maverick allows the system to boot up. i can then turn on the maverick 
after the system gets to the login prompt and the disks are detected as 
da0 and work just fine.

the LSI device was detected as mpt0.

many thanks!
