Please test the kernel images that were posted to this list.  You are
almost certainly being affected by the bug in cia_core.c.

I do have copies of their source tree that were rescued shortly after
they went under (at the time, the source was still available via
bitkeeper, I don't know if it is now), and I'm happy to give a copy to
anyone who wants it, but it doesn't really seem necessary since the real
problems were with the PCI initialization code and not with the
qlogicisp driver.  Even using their module didn't fix the SCSI
initialization problems I was seeing, and IIRC the code doesn't compile
cleanly in 2.6 due to kernel API changes.
