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

operating system, but compare it to ours. We can't possibly take such
a retrograde step."
