2.2.2 (from samba, I'm only getting back vger now) gave me MESH scsi
panics on boot here. (I haven't seen them for a while). the NCR 53X8XX
behaved fine but MESH panicked just after seeing my external HD. No
problem without the disk of course.

Didn't have time to try to find the problem yet neither.
