Is anyone else seeing a problem using SCSI disks (ext2 format) that
was introduced between 2.4.19-rc1 and the tip revision?

Upon booting the 2.4.20-pre6 (tip of CVS), the root filesystem throws
an error about an "unaligned directory entry" and then cannot find
init.
This sounds like a problem I had with cache flushing in pci.h which got triggered by a change in the ide dma driver. Is it a pci driver? If so you could try the fix
I submitted a few days ago with ide-dma in the subject line.
