The ARECA drivers have just moved from the mm tree into the mainline kernel in 
2.6.19, I've just downloaded and verified that their arcmsr driver 
(version still exists in drivers/scsi/arcmsr .

I guess you could say they were kicked upstairs, but certainly not kicked 
out.. :-)

Caveat: there is a known ext3 filesystem corruption bug in 2.6.19 and, 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):


Bugzilla entry for the compiling case:


Good luck!
