This server has been running -current all the time with about biweekly=20
updates, so it has made the transition all the way from about 6.1 to=20
todays current without problems.

Looks like a pattern, something outside of ATA also caused HW issues on=20
some Promise controllers to appear in this period.
Just checked and nothing in ATA changed in regards to either the HT1000=20
or the Promise HW, its the same support code thats been there all the tim=
It could be a sideeffect of now having more fine grained locking etc,=20
that makes these problems show up, your guess is as good as mine.
Again, the sticky point is that if I cant reproduce a problem here its=20
very hard to work on it, if not just plain impossible...
