Ok, cheers...  The kernel I've got (the 1.0release one) presumably doesn't
have the SCSI sync inhibit code compiled in (or indeed the debugging stuff),
'cos binpatch -s _inhibit_sync can't find the symbol;  (It can't find
the _sddebug (or whatever it is ;-) debugging symbols either :-(

he, well, I'll look for a kernel with it compiled in.  B4 I leave you alone
<grin>, presumably the _inhibit_sync symbol is a word (ie. 8 x 2bits)?
The FAQ doesn't detail it at all (it mentions how to binpatch the kernel
for a Retina display, but 'nought else).
