Uh, are there more than one Adaptec 2940's out there?  (Other than the 2940W
Fast/Wide appelation, that is)

I could have sworn I was using one (running on a 1 day old -current):

scipio# uname -a 
NetBSD 1.1B NetBSD 1.1B (SCIPIO) #0: Wed Mar 27 04:48:18 
1996 i386

ahc0 at pci0 dev 5 function 0ahc0: 294x Single Channel, SCSI Id=7, aic7870, 16
ahc0: Using Edge Triggered Interrupts
ahc0: Downloading Sequencer Program...Done
ahc0: Probing channel A
scsibus0 at ahc0

All I know is that this sucker *screams* and I've had *no* problems whatsoever
that could be remotely considered disk-related ... certainly nothing like our
friend from Hong Kong is suffering through ...

(Two 2.1 Gb SCSI disks, a Pioneer DRM-640 6-CD jukebox changer, and an Exabyte
  EXB-8200 on the SCSI bus)

As the saying goes, "Works great for me in my office",
