Actually, I'm reviving this project (SCSI IP that is, someone else will
have to do peripheral locking). I've found most of the bits and pieces I
need, and bought hardware yesterday. I'm going to start with an NCR
53C8xx driver, on the assumption that it will be popular because the
cards are fast and cheap. After that, there seems to be enough
information available to do the Adaptec aic7xxx cards.

I'll hopefully be writing the list in a few weeks, asking for beta
testers for the NCRs.
