 Summary: I have a Sun E420r (4 CPU, esiop SCSI) that always locked up when
 trying reconstruction (raidctl -R /dev/sd1a raid0) although parity rewrites
 were fine.  It never made it to the end of the reconstruction and usually
 locked up within the first 10 seconds.
 With this patch, it runs all the way through the reconstruction.  It would
 be good to get this in and also pulled up to netbsd-5.
   My other computer also runs NetBSD    /        Sailing at Newbiggin        /
