Recently, the method used to configure PCI devices was changed.  When the
modification was made to the 294x (aic7870.c) driver, a critical include
was left out, preventing any type of probe from being run on the card.  This
has been fixed in -current.

My kernel source tree has some experimental changes to the aic7xxx driver,
so I'd rather not be the one to give you a -current boot floppy.  Can 
someone else provide one?
