    That's not an API breakage. The API is left untouched, the driver
    now just reports the attached device as what it is. If HAL wasn't
    a piece of cargo-cult programming crap you'd see in the relevant
    standards what scsi device types exist, or even better stop relying
    on such low-level knowledge. It's a disk if sd_mod attaches to it
    is a much better rule than relying on lowlevel SAM details.
