Well, I did understand well hotplug...
I did read what's said about SBP2 on linux1394.org, BUT:

please read my latest mail, I did some try with the 2.4.21-rc1 ieee1394
stack, without /sbin/hotplug, and it worked.
I have neither rescan-scsi-bus.sh, nor scsiadd anywhere on this machine.
So, I'm sure that no user-space tool have been called by the kernel.

- I NEVER need to do an "echo ... > /proc/scsi/scsi" to see the device
(I tell again that I never use automatic tools to do this kind of
low level stuffs).
- I NEVER have to do this to see an USB mass-storage device:
I'm *REALLY* sure of this, as I wrote a very simple hotplug
and automounter for some embedded hardware which uses USB mass
storage devices. So, I don't see why SBP2 should need this...
- Please take a look at this session:
First, I reboot the Ibook:

root:~$ reboot
root:~$

The system is going down for reboot NOW!

So I NEVER write anything to /proc/scsi/scsi,
I got NO /sbin/hotplug, I use only insmod,
so I can have no side-effect due to modprobe usage,
and it works PERFECTLY on the Ibook,
using the 2.4.21-rc1 ieee1394 stack.

So, I'm sorry, but I keep thinking the new driver is buggy:
what used to work and doesn't...
