No, please upgrade to aic7xxx 5.1.2 or apply the patch to the
boot. There are now so many new motherboards with this chipset, so it
would be a pain if Debian cannot install on all these machines.
_And_ make sure, that the bootfloppies use this kernel as well (or a
patched 2.0.34).

I prepared a NMU for shellutils (master.debian.org:~doko), but this
one isn't fixed yet. Could somebody comment on #27425?
