Re: [PATCH] 2.5.24 : drivers/scsi/inia100.c

     Yes, I'm aware of the DMA mapping and pci_set_dma_mask() options.
As I stated, this is just the 1st patch for the DMA code. The
"interesting" parts will be included in a future patch (possibly by the
driver developers), as well as appropriate option for pci_set_dma_mask()
such as returning an error code or jumping to some code to return. This
goes for all of my recent DMA patches.
