I'm using the ahc driver on one machine here, and can report success on
the following configuration according to dmesg (using the 11 September

The controller itself is providing termination, and the last drive in the
chain is also terminated. Nothing too special there. However, beware if
you're mixing wide and narrow devices; you must terminate the upper data
lines where necessary or you'll probably encounter weirdness.
Actually, I'm torture-testing both drives simultaneously right now (large
recursive copies back and forth). The system seems to hold up fine.
Just another datapoint for whoever finds it useful.
