Several scsi updates. Hopefully the Acard is now totally wonderful and
solid. Chris at Acard sent me a driver update. That mostly worked and I
merged my fixes for the old driver into theirs and it "works for me".

There Alpha updates don't fix all the FPU issues yet, but otherwise should
be fine and now support the AMD Irongate based 21264 machines. The scsi
malloc fix accounts for several cases where high performance machines saw
scsi pool corruptions - it seems to mostly occur on boxes with either
fibrechannel or heavy SMP.
