there is no point in fixing half-done cleanups. But now it really looks
very nifty :)

btw, my IDE-disk SMP system is not flaky at all (under 2.1.36, ... pre 37
has slight booting problems ;), so i really suspect that there is some
unresolved SCSI problem haunting you, so if you are looking at problem
sources you should look into that area IMHO.
