Well, that caused *a* change.  I don't know if it's a good one.

Now if I do "newfs -I /dev/rsd0d" I get:

isp0: mailbox cmd(0x4005) with no waiters
isp0: I/O while mailbox blocked with retries 66747136

Constantly as newfs runs (very slowly).  If I ^C newfs, the messages
stop; if I restart it, they appear again.

On the other hand, if I do "dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/rsd0d bs=64k"
and let it run a while, I can "less -f /dev/rsd0d" and see that, in fact,
the data appear to have been written, with no errors reported -- the
disk is no longer full of NUL.

Does anyone have this driver working on a 64-bit platform?
