Some additional data points:

1. building 2.6.1-rc1 using GCC 2.96 (yes, RH 7.2 for Alpha :-), with
   the sym53c8xx_2 driver built into a GENERIC kernel, I had no trouble
   running an NCR 875 on an LX164 booted from SRM

2. I did have compile-time issues, however, that were solved by removing
   the "__devexit" from the sym_detach() declaration in the file


So, some additional questions:

1. what compiler/binutils are you using? (my original binutils have
   been updated to binutils-

2. was the SYM_2 driver built/used as a module or built into the kernel?
   (if it was a module, try it as a built-in)

Good luck.
