*nod*, the block layer shake up that went on in 2.5.1 hasn't really
been recovered from yet. A lot of SCSI drivers are in even worse state.
They compile, but lack error handling, so if something bad happens,
well.. you hope for the best. 

If any of you are curious btw, I (try to) keep an up to date list
of known problems with 2.5 at http://www.codemonkey.org.uk/Linux-2.5.html

That's a new one on me, can you send me the compile failure output ?
