Bug#464923: Kernel upgrade for 3Ware Driver issues?
The 2.6.18-6 kernel has a buggy 3w-xxxx driver. Causes data corruption on
(at least) EM64T w/ 4+GB of RAM. I'm also pretty sure it's the cause of
corruption on EM64T systems in 32-bit mode even w/o 4+GB of RAM.
Specifically it affects 7xxx and 8xxx series cards.
In any event this is a pretty serious bug affecting a pretty large number
of systems, more than what 3Ware seems to be admitting, so is there any
plan to issue an update? I have a number of systems affected by the bug.
Some I'm holding off upgrading to Debian 4.0 (from 3.1) because the bug
isn't present in 2.6.8.
