This is not needed, prlink stops to transfer the image when the error
occurs, so the 8050 image is perfect. It's just that the drives really
makes a lot of noise at the end of each transfer :-( Also, this
particular 8250 currently is a single drive, because the spindle motor
needs service. I'm happy that it works at least this way, when I got it
it was completely dead.

I also knew about the ROM disassebly on funet, but I thought I'd ask
here first before I start to wade through all that code ;-)
