aic7xxx has been in the kernel for a very long time, so no need for

 In menuconfig,
 Device Drivers | SCSI device support | SCSI low level drivers |
Adaptec AIC7xxx Fast -> U160 Support

 Avoid the old AIC7xxx driver with any kernel from the last 2 or 3
years, unless you have a special need for it.
