[PATCH] 2.2: Magic patch for older Symbios SCSI

From: Chip Salzenberg (chip@valinux.com)

Nobody knows why this patch works. (Really!) But it does. (Really!)
It makes the sym53c8xx driver work even with some very old 53c810 chips.
Without this patch, the driver hangs on them. This is reproducible....
