I have tested the patches but the new kernel don't see the scsi device...so
I can't try it anyway !

Yes, I have tested your kernel, but there is a message ( PC keyb error... or
something like this) wich lock the kernel during the boot ! It's probably
due to the Virtual Terminal support in the kernel !
I always use the "console=ttyS0,9600" kernel option.

In short :

- I can't use your kernel because of the PC_key error !
- I can't patch & build a new kernel because this new kernel don't see my

What can I do ?
