So the subject is a bit misleading as you are not using software RAID,
but only connecting a hardware RAID box through SCSI or FC; is this
right ? If so, what SCSI/FC card and what Linux module are you using ?
For the 2.4 test, the hardware RAID box was connected to the same 
computer or to another one ?
