etch-and-a-half and/or IT8213 backport for etch?
Is the 2.6.24-4 kernel that just made it to lenny expected to be
released for etch-and-a-half before/for r4? If not, would it be worth
it (read: likely to be accepted) to submit a patch to bts with a
backport of the it8213 IDE PCI driver?
The reason I ask is we've started buying servers at work that come
with the Supermicro X7SBi motherboard, which uses the IT8213 IDE
chipset. No driver in 2.6.18, making it impossible to install
etch. An it8213 driver was introduced just after 2.6.20, compiles
cleanly against 2.6.18-18, and works fine in my tests.
 Well, in my case we install onto 3ware controllers, so it's
installable if I grab a USB cdrom drive.
