Hi good folks,

I can┤t find the current maintainer for AHA-1542 scsi adapter in the maintainers list. Therefore
I am sending the patch to the general kernel list where I hope the current maintainer
of the stable/developers kernel will include it if the patch seems ok to them!

Best regards,
Bj÷rn L. ١r­arson
