I still don't understand why is ordering in BusLogic driver more important
than ordering anywhere else. Is there any reason for handling the bootup
SCSI controller different than the rest?

The issue is how the driver can determine which is the bootup SCSI controller.
The algorithm to do that requires using the PCI BIOS order, and then querying
that card if it is a BT-948/958/958D to see if the sorted order should be used
or the natural one. For the DAC960, I'm told the PCI BIOS enumeration gives
the correct ordering, so in that case I just use what I find.
