Just to second this - the Symbios 875 will NOT work with the
ncr53c75xx,8xx driver, even though it seems like it should. What's
worse, if you choose that driver, `make config' does not give you the
option to choose the ncr53c8xx driver instead, so you night never
realise it exists. I struggled with this for about a day :)
Perhaps this should be noted in the driver description?
