I'm using an Adaptec 2940 with the aic7xxx driver without any problems
(Linux 2.4.9, 2.4.13). 

If I remember correctly, some people has success using the old aic7xxx
driver (aic7xxx_old) instead of the new one. It's also included in the
standard kernels.

If this also happens with current kernels (2.4.13), please write also
to the developers of the kernel driver.
