Bug#374792: Regarding Firmware version 6.61
Unfortunately, FW 6.61 doesn't seem to support disks capacity over
128G, a condition I noted after downgrading from 6.67. I confirmed
the same behavior with two brands of 200G disks.
This makes 2.6.15-23 my last workable kernel, but I have to cold-boot
(power off) before restarts, otherwise, in warm-boot restarts the
driver will loop into never-never-land during device/lun enumeration.
This behavior may be AMD64 related, but I have not had the chance to
test i386 to confirm.
