I had both compiled into the kernel at the time, but i2o_block seems to
initialize first(i2o_block help claims they can both be used at same
time, I sure don't know :).

However, today I tried with only i2o_block compiled in, and now it just
complains about not being able to mount root filesystem. Same kernel and
same config, except DPT patch(from, for 2.4.5
but patches without any fuzz) and remove i2o support and add Adaptec i2o
support, works fine.
