I have no problem on my PWS600a / Miata GL with any recent 2.6 kernel but
what kind of PWS / Miata do you have?

 o  There are at two different and distinct variants of PWS / Miata, and
usually refered to by their internal hardware project names.

 o  The Miata MX5. The Miata MX5 variant has no USB ports and no on-board
SCSI on-board and a Intel SIO chipset. The Miata MX5 -a series typically
came with DEC branded Adaptec 2940UW SCSI controllers, Matrox Millennium
graphics cards, no L3 cache module, and an Toshiba IDE CD-Rom.

 o  The Miata GL. The Miata GL variant has USB ports and on-board SCSI and
a onboard Cypress IDE chipset.
