  I've been using the aic isa driver for a 1502 host adapter for a
couple of weeks now (with NetBSD 1.3.2 -- haven't yet tried with
-current), so far without problems.

  To me this looks more like a size problem in the partition table (or
the disklabel, for that matter) than a problem of the host adaptor. 
Seems like some superblock was attempted to be written by newfs to a
block somewhere past the end of the available harddisk space ...
