There's nothing like answering one's own questions. Without testing
2.6.x, I've got the thing stabilized with the qla1280 driver, which
now also includes support for the 1020. The driver (ripped from
220.127.116.11) compiles easily on 2.4.27 with som minor changes to
include/asm-alpha/io.h. I used an even newer version of the driver,
see the linux-scsi list archives for details, but I guess the 3.24.3
version from 18.104.22.168 would work anyway.
an updated qla1280 is the only driver that runs md raid1 stable with
the 1020 on our COMPAQ Alphaserver DS10 466 MHz.
Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you
give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in
judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.
