I'm trying to make a AVA-2825 VLB combo board work reasonably under Linux.

It has the following chips on it:

2x AIC-25VL06P and a AIC-6360Q.

is there a reasonably fast diver for it under 2.0.xx ?

I tried `hdparm -d1` and `hdparm -p3`  But I could turn on neither DMA,
nor PIO mode 3 and 4.

This is a shame, because the drives are capable of 8-10M/sec, but I'm
getting something like 2M or worse.

Also, is the SCSI part of it supported well?
