    It would be nice if people would comment on "ridiculous interface"s when
    they're asked for feedback, instead of waiting more than two years.

    I think you're misunderstanding how to use scsi_wait_scan. The idea was
    that the bit of userspace that probes all the device drivers would do:

    modprobe fusion.ko
    modprobe aic79xx.ko
    modprobe sym53c8xx.ko
    modprobe scsi_wait_scan
    rmmod scsi_wait_scan

    et voila, you're done. It seems like you want random other bits of
    userspace to wait for scsi scanning to be done, and that wasn't the
    original intent.


    I suppose we could add Yet Another Damn Sysfs File, say
    /sys/bus/scsi/wait_scan
