Running 2.4.9-13smp (ext2) and 2.4.14 with 2.4.13-aacraid patch posted
yesterday (ext2) on a PERC2/Si (PE2400) as /dev/sdb now.  I'm not seeing any
troubles.  fdisk, mke2fs, fsck, mounting, copying files, unmounting, fsck,
repeat...  all working fine.

2.4.14 (2.4.13-aacraid patch) also gives nice verbose messages in
dmesg/syslog when pulling and re-inserting a drive.

To be fair, I've not got /dev/sdb mounted at system startup.  I'm loading
the aacraid driver and mounting it later.  That *shouldn't* be a problem.
