    Hmm.. The current order is the same as in 2.2.x, and puts aha17xx _after_
    the other ones. Or did that change in the later 2.2.x series?

    So change the drivers/Makefile to put scsi before i2o and
    drivers/scsi/Makefile to do the aha17xx thing first, and we're all done.

    (Not that I think any distribution would come with i2o even enabled at
    this point, and the scsi ones all tend to be modules too).

    End of story. No "reorganizations" needed.
