Yes, unfortunately the driver broke with the conversion to device_t.
I am glad to say that it is rock solid for me now :-) I am running
it on three machines and I am giving it quite a beating with -j 40
builds. You should be ok if you have a driver that pre-dates the
device_t conversion though. A driver that has the device_t conversion
and predates my fixes will not boot. The kernel gets stuck waiting
for a scsi event that will never happen because the pointer to the
scsi subsystem is wrong, so we try to lock a mutex in random memory
IIRC. It should be simple to port all the driver patches from HEAD to
-6 though.
