I'd like to encourage everyone involved to make sure that the fixes for
both the aic7xxx and 3c509 drivers are included in the final 2.0.31

For better or worse both of those pieces of hardware are widely used.
IMO, not supporting them as well as we possibly can in this release would
be a major mistake.

On the bright side, a 'make -j zImage' ran to completion on my 16mb system
last night in about 13 hours, which is about an hour's improvement over
pre-7. I'm psyched! I was even able to open a ssh connection while the job
was running with the load average at 33 and check on its progress!
