Yep.  I've got a driver that now seems to get the data correctly in and out
of the SCSI-devices, albeit at a not too impressive speed (levels out at
about 1.7MB/s going through the filesystem).  Anyone out there that are
interested in testing it out?  It is/was stable enough that I've managed to
build world on a scsi disk hooked up to my AIC-6360-equipped motherboard.
I've tested it with a few different disks (scsi I & II) and a Nec cdrom
player (scsi I).  I would very much appreciate if anyone with a tape drive
and an AIC-6360 on their motherboard would assist me in debugging the
driver, as I don't have a tape drive.

At the moment I'm trying to make it a bit faster and more robust (Trying to
detect bus hangs and some other stuff.  I wasted about a week trying to
track down a bug in the driver that turned out to be a bad cable .... So
the motivation is there allright.)

Also, as I've only got docs for the AIC-6360 and not for any of the other
Adaptec chips, the driver will probably not work with the other chips
without modifications.
