Yep, I encountered that one from 2.6.14 on or so - submitted a patch for
this I think. It's due to our SCSI drivers setting one of the host

midlevel gets confused). It's no can_queue or cmd_per_lun but I cannot
remember the name right now.

really deep understanding of the IDE driver (yuck). Not going there if I
can help it :-)

The natfeats ethernet driver may have been missed in some ethernet driver
updates (parameter list of the inthandlers changed some way back as far
as I remember), or even be missing. Gert should know what I'm talking
