Scatter/Gather - Ultrastor 34F - All over my disk!

Hi All,

You may want to exercise great care when *attempting* to install the
ALPHA ultrastorsg code. I have 99.pl8 running on a Micronics LB MB,
Ultrastor 34F and a 2GB disk. Looking for aditional speed (never
satisified) I got the alpha code, compiled my kernel, ran lilo/install,
sync'ed my box, and rebooted. All was fine untill the system started to
load, at which time the kernel started to "crap" all over mt e2fs file

The FAQ is it's untested on a 34F, so it should be fair warning.....
If you want your data, *DON'T USE THIS CODE*.

You might think I'm taking a dim view of all of this, but generally
I have now problem with linux, it's great. (we all have bugs around
