Re: kernel BUG

My recommendation for this is to *not* use the in-kernel qla2xxx driver.
Not that it's necessarily bad mind you, but much new hardware doesn't
seem to like it. I've locked up a box several times using it. Instead, I
recommend that you go to qlogic's site and get 6.0.27 and try it. It's
much faster than the previous drivers, and has been very stable and
compile's with no warnings ever, at least in my scenario.

I recently had an issue with a QL2xxx driver, some storage, and LUNs. My
issue turned out to be a blacklist issue, but, I got a lot of info from
the Qlogic folks as well, regarding which driver should be used today.

Hope this helps.
