Log message:
This has been a pain in the ass for about 8 months which made new ICP
cards lock up under load: skip two initializations that we were
previously told to use by ICP themselves (ie. from their linux
driver).  now we are not supposed to use those APIs, because the new
firmwares for their new cards become unrealiable.  and that is all we
have been able to find out.  sigh.

For some cards, you must also be sure to get a new boot firmware from
ICP because they made another mistake: Any bootblock that tried to
switch back and forth between real and protected mode ended up with
corrupted registers.

from Achim_Leubner_(_at_)_adaptec_(_dot_)_com, via niklas, tested on a few cards
by a few people.
