I was experimenting with reformatting a disk to 1024-byte sectors again today
and I found that the aic7xxx driver had the same problem with overflow in
the timeout calculation that the ncr53c9x driver did. I fixed that one,
but looking at the other disk drivers in sys/dev/ic, I see these problems:
same timeout problem as the drivers mentioned above:
problem with truncation of small values instead of overflow of large values:
also, the dpt driver doesn't use the xfer timeout for interrupt-driven i/o
as far as I can tell. maybe I missed it.
there are no doubt other drivers with the same problem hidden away, these
are just the ones I found. I don't have the hardware for most of these,
could someone who can test changes take a look at fixing these problems?
