        Correct, the cards don't work in current either.  The driver is
failing in its call to bus_alloc_resource() for the irq in dpt_pci.c, and
then panic(9) ensues as it tries to resource_list_release but cant find

        During the boot it comes up with:
dpt0: <DPT Caching SCSI RAID Controller> port 0xdc60-0xdc7f irq 16 at
device 8.0 on pci 2

even though bios asigned it irq 9...  hmmm....

I have tried it on a few machines now, with both -current and -stable

        I may be able to help some here...
        Would root on a testbed,breakable,remote dual xeon machine with a
dpt card in it help?  I could install a snapshot from before the commits
and let you have at it.  I would even reboot it into the working kernel
from here if you need ;)...  Boy those DPT utils would be nice.... heh
