Today I got tired of my crash-and-burn PC (old Intel p90 box) taking
six minutes to do a crash dump of 64M. It's been using the siop driver
for the bus the disk is on, and on a lark I switched it back to the
ncr driver. Dumping 64M only took two minutes in that setup. 

Anyone else see the same problem?
