Dear Graham,

No, it is impossible. It does NOT compile for you just like it doesnt
compile for me unless you did what I did, which is copied file
aic7xxx_seq.h from 1.3.95 distribution to /usr/src/linux/drivers/scsi.

Other alternatives are:

1. You are using modules and, therefore, its a totally "different Universe"
of which I know nothing and cant comment

2. You used patch against previous version whereas I always download new
linux-XXX.tar.gz file (its only a few megs... :) and I have this
superstitous fear of using patches, the fresh kernel looks "nicer")
and, therefore, you had the file left there from previous version.

3. Miracle happened and aic7xxx_seq.h got created by itself on your host
(possible but highly unlikely IMHO)

Dear Linus, a simple thing I wanted to ask you... Can you please include
aic7xxx_seq.h file next time the kernel is released? Thank you.

Lots of regards,

PS. Btw, that thing I said about renaming something was not true - ok,
I said it without even looking at it. I promise I did spent 2 minutes on it
now before writing this :)
