I just wanted to add that this was with benH tree grabbed from BK.

Here is the PCI info (/proc/pci from 2.2.20)

  Bus  0, device  17, function  0:
    SCSI storage controller: Adaptec AIC-7860 (rev 1).
      Medium devsel.  Fast back-to-back capable.  IRQ 30.  Master
Capable.  Latency=32.  Min Gnt=4.Max Lat=4.
      I/O at 0x0 [0x1].
      Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0x80800000 [0x80800000].

OF device is:
and it is not OF bootable :-( hence, no quik.

It seems to be in the aic7xxx driver.

Each time I tried to boot with miBoot from a pre-build 2.4 kernel it did
not find the adapter. Each I try to boot a kernel I build, (using
image.miboot, or zImage), miBoot just fails.
