I believe the problem happens with 6.62 or higher.

Bingo! megaraid_mbox works for me with F/W 6.61. How did you know?

So the patch does not really solve the problem and probably should be
removed from the -mm tree.

I've forwarded your request to program management team. But, I don't think it will be accepted.

So I ask the question again: could a patch like described above be accepted
until the problem with F/W >6.61 is solved in the new megaraid_mbox driver?
