After the not so recent changes by eeh and mhitch, I (A3000 WD-04
Quantum PD210S, Quantum Fireball 1080S, Maxtor 7245S, Archive Viper 150
... yes, thats a very wierd combination, with the old driver I could
boot sync with a 30% chance of failing, after which it would work, til I
got the Fireball, after that no chance of syncing) can
- operate AOS sync and NetBSD sync
- operate AOS async and NetBSD sync
- operate AOS sync and NetBSD async
- operate both async.
with the old drivers, only the last combination had a chance of working.
It is already a binpatchable option. Maybe it would be wise to make
async the default on the GENERIC kernel for those WD-08ers or GVPers or
whats the real problem out there; after all the new driver CAN negotiate
async, so it shouldn't hang the bus if ADOS was working sync.
