New Revision: 199095
> While certain supported Symbios/LSI SCSI chips (532c896, 53c1000, 53c1010)
> do support 64bit addresses, the current SCRIPTS code supports only 32bit
> addresses causing data corruption for buffer addresses >4GB. This problem
> affects 64bit machines with more than 4GB RAM or amd64 with 4GB and
> memory hole remapping.
> Work-around this problem with a bus_dma tag that requests bounce-buffers
> for addresses >4GB. This causes some overhead, but given the maximum SCSI
> bus speed of 160MB/s compared, the effect should hardly be noticeable.
> The problem was reported by Mike Watters (mike at mwatters net) who also
> verified that this fix cures the problem.
> Since this change is a NOOP on systems with less than 4GB RAM and fixes
> data corruption (in RAM and on disk) on systems with more than 4GB, I hope
> that this change is accepted for 8.0.

 Stefan requested this be part of 8.0 but has been unavailable to do
the MFC since submitting the request. We want to get 8.0-RC3 started
so I'm doing the merges with re@ hat on.
