Ever since v2.4.3 this driver is advertised as not being under active
development. It's main advantage to most users will be the warnings it
generates at build time:
drivers/scsi/aic7xxx_old.c: In function ‘aic7xxx_register’:
drivers/scsi/aic7xxx_old.c:7901:5: warning: case value ‘257’ not in enumerated type ‘ahc_chip’ [-Wswitch]
drivers/scsi/aic7xxx_old.c:7898:5: warning: case value ‘513’ not in enumerated type ‘ahc_chip’ [-Wswitch]
drivers/scsi/aic7xxx_old.c: In function ‘aic7xxx_load_seeprom’:
drivers/scsi/aic7xxx_old.c:8517:5: warning: case value ‘257’ not in enumerated type ‘ahc_chip’ [-Wswitch]
drivers/scsi/aic7xxx_old.c:8510:5: warning: case value ‘513’ not in enumerated type ‘ahc_chip’ [-Wswitch]
Let's drop this old driver.

0) I'm trying to get my kernel builds (which use the Fedora kernel
config) warning free. Upstream declined the brilliant fix to silence
these warnings (see https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/9/21/104 ).
1) Plan B is to simply drop this old driver in the Fedora kernel
altogether. That should silence these warnings too, shouldn't it? But is
dropping this old driver acceptable?
2) This patch is entirely untested.

I am new to the list, i am experiencing a bizzarre issue with debug
kernels. I used debug kernels in the past without issues.
The issue is that the last two debug kernels i tried do not boot. So i
cannot boot debug kernels.
Kernels that boot normally:
Kernels that do not boot.
(older kernels untested)
It is perceived as a increasing slowness in dracut but when one press
ESC one will find that "Watchdog detected hard LOCKUP on cpu 1! and a
call trace, in fact, there are many call traces in which the cpu
number changes. Ultimatelly, one needs to press the reset button.
HW: FX-6100 on 990FX chipset
Thanks in advance.
