Having recently switched from an NCR 53c810 to an NCR 53c875 SCSI
card, and finding that the older version of the 53c8xx driver supplied
with kernels 2.0.30 and 2.1.27 does not work properly with my '875,
can someone please merge in the latest drivers before 2.0.31 and
2.1.38 come out?
With the '875 being the chip-of-choice when shipping NCR 53c8xx cards,
I think it would be helpful to have the latest stable and experimental
kernels support the '875. Please, guys. I'm begging 'ya.
