Er, I guess I wasn't too clear.  The wrong patch looked nothing like the
right patch. :)  The "right" patch was the generic scsi fix listed in the
2.2.2 rel notes, not sure what files tho.  However in skimming the 2.2.2
patch I saw some changes to linux/drivers/scsi/ncr53c8xx.c.  reversing
this had no effect I take it? (didn't look at the full context of where
the diff went, might not effect us at all..)
