When trying to use a SCSI scanner under 2.1.101, connected to an Adaptec
AHA2940UW contrioller, I've twice got a complete lockup.

No helpful messages or anything. Alt-SysRq-P shows EIP values of c010827f,
which is just after the 'hlt' in cpu_idle:

0xc010827e <cpu_idle+62>: hlt
0xc010827f <cpu_idle+63>: cmpl $0x0,0xc0213578
0xc0108286 <cpu_idle+70>: je 0xc0108342 <cpu_idle+258>

It's v5.0.13 of the aic7xxx driver, IIRC. Is this likely to have been fixed in
