The ARECA drivers have just moved from the mm tree into the mainline kernel in
2.6.19, I've just downloaded 22.214.171.124 and verified that their arcmsr driver
(version 1.20.00.13) still exists in drivers/scsi/arcmsr .
I guess you could say they were kicked upstairs, but certainly not kicked
Caveat: there is a known ext3 filesystem corruption bug in 2.6.19 and
126.96.36.199, it's apparently hard to trigger (though someone said they got it
through just compiling).
If you are a Linux Weekly News subscriber (and if you're not you probably
should be, it's a great news resource) you can read about it here (should be
freely available at the end of the week when the next weekly news comes out):
