The latest devfs patch (v25) makes it easy to fix this. Firstly, there
are the device entries based on SCSI IDs, and secondly there is the
"scsihosts=" kernel option which controls the assignment of SCSI host
numbers. Have a look at

It's against 2.1.91. I'll be bringing out a version against 2.1.94 in
a few days (plus some other changes), now that my machine is back on
the air (dead M/B: SuperMicros suck, in my experience).
