This driver quite regularly panics my system: sometimes it will panic during shutdown, preventing the kernel from syncing discs, sometimes it will panic during CVS checkouts, etc. Generally at inconvenient moments while there is (heavy) filesystem activity. I haven't experienced this with the siop driver. 

Can you give more details about the panic ? Especially, a stack trace from ddb
would be nice (type 'tr' at the db> prompt).
