You *don't* want to be running that kernel.  2.4.9-21 has a better aacraid
driver, and 2.4.9-31 has the current aacraid driver.  Coincidentally, the
'clipped messages' bug was fixed in both of those errata kernels.  Also
solved in these is the highmem bug whereby the controller wouldn't hang the
system just because a buffer it was moving happened to reside >1GB.

afacli can be used to get the actual messages back, and if you dig through
the linux-aacraid-devel archives, you should be able to find the patch to
rx.c that fixes the printf messages.  But really, you should seriously
consider running a kernel other than 2.4.9-13.
