Justin,

I've seen a special U320 driver aic79xx v1.10, but I suppose that the new
U320 controllers will be folded into a new version of your aic7xxx driver
(?).  If so, I'd like to know which version of the aic7xxx driver will
include support of the new aic7902 controller, and which kernel version will
be targeted to have that folded in.  

Andy

Nope.  The U320 chips will never be supported in the aic7xxx driver due
to their very different architecture.  aic79xx v1.1.0 (or 1.1.1 which
includes the port to the 2.5.X kernels) is what you want.

Which kernel version it will be folded into is beyond my control.  The
code has been sent to both Marcelo and Linus.

	Hello Justin ,
	What is the latest version # of the aic7xxx driver ?
	Where is the latest version of the aic7xxx driver ?
	I've been to:
		http://people.freebsd.org/~gibbs/linux/
	and it shows 6.2.5 .  My kernel 2.4.19 says 6.2.6 .
	An email from you to the list mentions you rolling a 6.2.7 quite
	sometime ago .  Help !-} .  Tia ,  JimL

  Where can I find the v1.1.0 patch?
