This is telling you that the slha (symbios HBA driver) is running
the init function. If this isn't required for boot then type
"defbootstr disable=slha" without the " and see what this does
for you. If you plan to fix this with another LSI HBA of the
same type put this in the /etc/default/boot file until you do.
If not turn the driver off and relink the kernel.
The boostring will tell the kernel to ingore the init function
for that driver or skip it on kernel initialization.
hope this helps.

Many of the products and books I review are things I purchased for my own use. Some were given to me specifically for the purpose of reviewing them. I resell or can earn commissions from the sale of some of these items. Links within these pages may be affiliate links that pay me for referring you to them. That's mostly insignificant amounts of money; whenever it is not I have made my relationship plain. I also may own stock in companies mentioned here. If you have any question, please do feel free to contact me.
Specific links that take you to pages that allow you to purchase the item I reviewed are very likely to pay me a commission. Many of the books I review were given to me by the publishers specifically for the purpose of writing a review. These gifts and referral fees do not affect my opinions; I often give bad reviews anyway.
