Spent most of the week on getting the various RHEL arches happily working again. Unfortunately, some of these aren't quite as stable kernel-wise in 2.6 yet as I'd hope. Interfaces still changing slightly, etc. Finally succeeded for the most part I think.

Also have looked a little at some of what's going to need to be done for supporting the Promise SX8 SATA card — it's a fairly nice card, 8 SATA ports. Haven't really looked at its performance at all. Unfortunately, it's Yet Another Block Device, instead of (sanely) just showing up as, eg, a SCSI disk. So need to push those changes through a variety of places.

Also, taking a long weekend over the holiday weekend. It's nice to get away a little bit.
