MD5 Checksums don't match - I've seen it too.

Saw the article wherein MD% checksum fail was mentioned.

When I applied an Adaptec aic7xxx patch for 2.4.17, I also saw
the MD5 checksums don't match messages. Based on commentary I'd
deen re GNU patch reliability, I chose to believe it was one of
those that worked OK, but didn't finish the "bookkeeping".

Everything worked alright, system boot, SCSI works, etc.

But thought if you didn't know already this might be a useful
tidbit in some problem investigations.
