Thanks obrien ;-} Scott? Hmmmmm? Where is a pitchfork when you need it ;->

Time and micro-managed priorities limit my usefulness currently, Scott is
right ...

Driver is just asking for it's `just deserved' mappings to the card, I put
my vote with Michael with regards to the PCI system not differentiating
non-prefetched (hardware) and prefetched (memory) mappings (said with an
aire of pretending to know unintentional).

SCSI is too expensive for many folk, that is why we made the 2400A. However,
IDE looses 2ms on every access because it can not overlap commands -- much
of that delay is reduced with the SCSI origined 2400A's
cache/coalesce/elevator code, we see performance that has us wondering out
loud about the SCSI price differential.

Good luck, hope I could help ...
