Reviewing the diff between 2.6.7 and doesn't show any significant
changes to the sym2 driver (lots of 0/NULL changes, and ppc64 is weird,
but not /that/ weird ;-)

So it must be something sym2 is using.  The obvious candidate is the
change to drivers/scsi/scsi_transport_spi.c in the spi_dv_retrain
function.  If you pull that out, does it work better?
