    Linus,

    Please apply the patch below before you call this 2.2. Since kernel
    2.1.116, the kernel Oopses or crashes when you do a:

    echo "scsi add-single-device 0 0 6 0" > /proc/scsi/scsi

    with a BusLogic SCSI controller. I do this when I want to use my
    external tape streamer, that is normally turned off. The two functions
    BusLogic_ReportTargetDeviceInfo() and BusLogic_SelectQueueDepths() are
    called in this case, so they cannot be declared as "__init".
