These asm problems are probably the generic asm problems of old linux
kernels with new gcc's. You can actually try to use the 2.2 driver, but this
might not work for scsi controller drivers (for network cards, it seems to
work). What you can do is backport the asm changes in 2.2 driver to 2.0.38
driver. I did this a couple of times, and missed the adaptec driver because
it is not compiled by default. See the huge changelog entries of Stefan and
me a couple of months ago. Note that some asms were replaced by C code, so
you need to do an eyeball comparison of the surrounding code.

Send us a working driver and I will commit it to CVS and enable it in the
Debian package.
