It wasn't meant to be merged "as is", because this set of patches does
have crud in it.  This was a "post early, post often" code sampler.

Yes, well, we now have a better recovery mechanism from Brian King; I'll
try that tommorrow.  I also want to do the symbios driver, and maybe one
more if I can find h/w to test on.
