That was *it*. Up and running on 4.14 with no issues. Have reported
success and requested closure of bug #883089.
FYI, "1040.bin" *is* the correct firmware for the Qlogic ISP1020 card
as confirmed by examination of the driver source.
Oddly enough, I've been including the firmware for the video card as
part of the kernel build since forever: the console wouldn't initialize
properly without it. Never occurred to me the same thing might be
needed for the built-in SCSI driver, mostly because everything worked
great up through kernel version 4.13.
