This was supposed to have gone here anyway, but went only to Michael.
So, I'll repost it...
Anyway, concerning the uVAX SCSI/DMA code, seeing as
1, the SCSI code works most of the time, and
2, retrying when it fails clears the problem (most of the time),
why not patch the DMA code to retry an operation instead of failing
and returning SIGSEGV? Of course, this will get you when something actually
fails, but could it be tried?
