kernel panic

OK I upgraded the Kernel to 2.4.18-17.7 and things seem to be working
fine, however I get this message at startup right after the aic7xxx
module is loaded that reads: "blk: que f7ba6618, I/O limit 4095Mb (mask
0xffffffff)", this message appears 4 times (three times after detecting
my 3 scsi hard disks and 1 after detecting my cd-rom).  Is this a safe
message to ignore?  I tried starting my system with the old kernel image
(2.4.7-10) and the message does not appear there.

2.4.18-17 was released last week for RHL 7.[123] and 8.0.  It's the 8.0
kernel + security and bug fixes.
I really like being back to one kernel stream to worry about for all my
7.x
and 8.0 boxes.
