Hi Jim,

I'm pretty sure the symlink has nothing to do with your problem. In
fact, a quick google on "sym53c8xx" pulls up bug reports from over the
past year and before on this exact problem -- earlier kernels working,
later ones not.

I didn't dig deep enough to discern if or how this is solved, but the
solution is probably out there by now -- you just have to dig deep enough.

HTH & regards,
