Subject:   Adaptec 2940UW hang with multiple Wide SCSI Disks - FreeBSD 2.2.2

I think I read recently that doing a "newfs" on a wide SCSI disk with an 
Adaptec 2940UW hangs the system (a deadlock ?)

I can concur with this and confirm that turning off wide negotiation in the 
SCSI setup seems to correct this.

3 questions :

1)  Does anyone have any more info on this
2)  Is there updated driver code I can include in the kernel build
3)  Having "newfs"-ed, would turning back on wide negotiation lead to more 
problems similar to the "newfs" problem

Thanks

Wayne
