Yes! Now I can use the TC PMAZ-AA without problems. I've copied
some data around, without any problems. Fsck found no problems
on the fs on that drive.

Thanks a lot.

Will these patches go into the oss CVS (2.4) tree?

BTW: Are your patches to the declance driver in a way that we can use
one unified driver for the /240 and the /200 systems? I still use
the driver modified by Dave for my /200 kernels.

Regards,
Karel.
