Actually, my points were that almost all of the failures I have
observed were in reading the rescue disk (which AFIK is read by the
BIOS drivers), and that the failures were truly random, and that new
disks performed no better than used ones. The previous message, from
Jason Gunthorpe <email@example.com>, I believe, made the
suggestion that the Linux drivers were the source of the problem.
