Bug#410817: 101E:1960
Upgrading firmware may be bad advice in this case.

When I researched it last time I was told there is a known issue with
the legacy megaraid driver and newer firmware (newer than 6.61 according
to this if it is the same issue).

The workaround then was to hack the PCI IDS that were dropped around
2.6.15 into the legacy megaraid driver source, build a kernel/module and
install it, recreating initrd if/as necessary.

At the time I thought ignore it till they fix the kernel; Andrew Morton
and co were aware of this issue at the time. So don't expect upstream
fixes any time soon.

Alas I now have to fix the issue on my own server, as I can't run my
bespoke copy of 2.6.15-7 any longer.

Is there a policy reason not to have the missing PCI IDs patched into
the Debian kernel, as I for one, would much prefer to be running a stock
Debian kernel than rolling my own.
