Hi Kernel Guys,

Please reply to me on because I am no longer subscribed
to this wonderful mailing list (too much noise). Since 2.0.0 I started having
these horrifying messages coming from SCSI subsystem
(/usr/src/linux/drivers/scsi/aic7xxx.c aic7xxx_isr() function). Booting the
old kernel does not help because I assume that 2.0.0 corrupted my scsi disk
a little bit so I get the same messages (a couple of dozens of them with
different "got" numbet followed by MEDIUM ERROR on scsi disk).

So, please tell me what to do? Repartition everything? Compile new kernel on
another machine (because I cant run processes with too much disk I/O - I get
those underflows) and hope that the problem goes away? Panic? Buy another
scsi disk? Mail to linux-kernel again in hope that this time somebody will
know the answer? Mail Linus (only as a last resort, I know how busy he is).

Thanks a lot to all those who read it,
Special thanks to all those who will reply,
