Package: linux-image-2.6-686
Version: 2.6.18+5

Linux kernel from 2.6.18 to 2.6.20 seems to have a problem in st (tape) drive
support. Bugzilla error report:
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7919.
I have applied the patch provided in the kernel BTS to 2.6.18.5 and made some
tests. Tape drive is working with this patch.

It would be nice to apply/backport this patch to the Debian Etch kernel.
Otherwise using a tape drive will cause a kernel OOPS.

This was fixed in commit 9abe16c670bd3d4ab5519257514f9f291383d104, marking
2.6.20 as closed version.

If you're running Etch, please use the the 2.6.24 based kernel added in 4.0r4.
