    Either you compiled the SCSI driver as a module (double check your
    .config) or it was compiled as builtin but failed to detect the
    hardware (ask the ncr53c8xx maintainer).

    >kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k block-major-8, errno = 2

    Trying to load the SCSI driver. Fix the "scsi : 0 hosts" and this
    problem will go away.

    08:xx is SCSI, side effect of no host found.

    >NMI Watchdog detected LOCKUP on CPU0, registers:

    NMI oops is a side effect of having no root. This is not a modprobe
    problem, modprobe is only being called because the kernel needs root on
    SCSI but there are no SCSI hosts found. Fix the hosts problem and the
    rest should disappear.
