I am currently developing a driver over scsi. This driver handles certain driver specific ioctls and the rest are passed down to the underlying sd device using ioctl_by_bdev.

On RedHat AS3.0 (2.4.21-9.0.1.EL) UP and SMP this is working correctly. However on the hugemem kernel there is a kernel panic. The hugemem kernel for AS3.0 has a 4GB-4GB split patch for the kernel and user memory.

Could anyone please tell me if this is the reason for the crash and if so how I can avoid it.

Please let me know if I am doing the right thing to pass the ioctls down to the lower layer.
