Has anyone else noticed an increased fickleness on 2.1.7 with the ncr and
the de drivers?
On my 2.1.5 system, I never heard a complaint from the de driver, and the
ncr driver might occasionally complain
/kernel: sd1(ncr0:1:0): extraneous data discarded.
during one of the nightly backups. But now it's happening more frequently.
In addition, the de driver is sometimes complaining (particularly on
/kernel: de0: abnormal interrupt: receive process stopped
I'm not that fussed about these, as they don't seem to be leading to loss
of data, but it's intriguing.
This is on a 2.1.7 system, 200MHz P6, 64MB, PCI. The devices in question
de0 <Digital DC21041 Ethernet> rev 17 int a irq 10 on pci0:10
ncr0 <ncr 53c810 scsi> rev 2 int a irq 11 on pc i0:12
(ncr0:0:0): "FUJITSU M2952S-512 0124" type 0 fixed SCSI 2
sd0(ncr0:0:0): FAST SCSI-2 100ns (10 Mb/sec) offset 8.
