I don't think this is the only reason:
see, we have an A500-5X (4 built-in SCSI ports, 1 875 and 1 896), which hangs from boots to boots when booting with SYM2 driver, and at each boot _when SYM2 debug options are set to max verboseness_.

I also remember we had some troubles with SYM2 on our J5k (2 ports: 896), though I have not checked this box with SYM2 since 2.4.18-pa21.

We're investigating on that problem and keep the m-l informed.
