SubjectRe: 2.4.9-ac10 scsi_scan broke with SPARSELUN devices( /proc/partitions loops)
Reverting the the 2.4.9 sd.c also fixed my problem. Apparently it has 
nothing to do with the SPARSELUN in scsi_scan.

Perhaps since my boot/root device aren't modules, my system wasn't
affected till I loaded a disk module.
