It would be interesting to know what type of panics you saw prior
to 6.2.4.  It might help me track down where this problem began.

The card seems to be loosing some of its resources.  I can't say
why yet.  I think it may be a regression in some of the abort
code in the kernel.  Could you try running with AHC_DEBUG_SEQUENCER
enabled?  You can just #define this to 1 in aic7xxx.c.
