I am working hard with Gerard to make the NCR driver robust. Part of the
problem seems to be that Linux does not have a good mid-level SCSI
error handling mechanism - all the error handling seems to have to be done
at a low level directly in the scsi driver.

Anyway, the NCR driver seems to be quite good running a striped md0 array
of drives on our news server. And it will just get better :-)

BTW we have a Buslogic PCI, and it's nice too, but it's not seeing
anywhere the heavy load that our news server is.
