Re: Kernel upgrade for 3Ware Driver issues?

I guess the number of systems with amd64 and a 3ware 7xxx/8xxxx PATA
controllers is pretty small, otherwise this bug would have been noticed
earlier. So the sky is not falling.
Technically, this is not a security bug.
It definitely affects non-64bit systems too, contrary to 3Ware's claims.
We had corruption on a 32bit system, which is what prompted us to start
figuring it out.
And I agree, technically it isn't, but security is one of the few ways to
get updates into the distribution that are NMU.
