The SCSI layer needs to be checked. I reproduced another crash on today on an older Niksun box running off the end of the stack.

It's somewhere in the scanning code. There's a case where it runs off the end of the stack. Check the compaq drivers for SATA as well, they also crash in a similiar place during bus scan. Both occurred during bootup, so I wasn't able to get a log of the particulars. Should be easy to reproduce. Compaq Presario 2200.

Do you have a backtrace for these? Real-life problem tend to generate
more attention than theoretical results based on code checkers.
