Shouldn't need that anymore (the qla1280 driver sets up 64-bit addressing
when on a 64-bit system).  I've seen this occasionally.  Easiest to
reproduce it if you do repeated reboots until it fails.  In my case, it
would repeat the Red Hat installer between 9 and 30 times before failing,
but haven't been able to track it down yet.
