Subject: WARNING in pci-dma::dma_free_coherent, during unload of


I killall -9'ed "taper" because my SCSI hardware was going haywire,
and tried to rmmod sym53c8xx, and got a nice warning from the kernel -
shown below.

[Please Cc: replies, I'm subscribed to linux-kernel@, but not linux-scsi@]

The machine had been suspended to disk before (via /sys/power/state).
