This is 2.1.132ac2. The 8390 might work now, or it might not work at all.
It has the fix from Linus for the enable_irq bug.

Differences between 2.1.132ac2 and 2.1.132ac1

o       8390 locking rewrite (me)
o       IDE CD update (Jens Axboe)
o       Alpha/PPC compile fixes (Michael Gilbert)
o       QlogicFC update (Chris Loveland)
o       ES1370/71/Sonic Vibes updates (Thomas Sailer)

        | Note for those who type blindly at speed into make config - the fs 
        | stuff has changed order to be Alphabetical by section
o       Metalab was sunsite.unc.edu, 
        Now its metalab not sunsite.unc.edu
        Been a long time gone sunsite.unc.edu
        Now its a generally bright not a special sun site
        Every file in sunsite.unc.edu
        Lives in metalab not sunsite.unc.edu
        So if you've got a url for sunsite.unc.edu
        It'll be archived for you in metalab
        ....
