I don't know why you are seeing corruption in 2.6. Provided I don't put any
serious load on the qlogicisp driver is seems to work OK. As soon as you put
some real work into it (or just a cdrecord!) it will hang though.
The feral driver works fine but I haven't seen it ported to 2.6 yet - certainly
the version I have won't compile under 2.6.
FWIW - here's a copy: http://people.debian.org/~patrick/isp_dist.tgz
