Some additional datapoints: I just commented out the last two lines
of sd.c:

-module_exit(exit_sd);

+module_exit(exit_sd);*/
Now -test8 works for me (with the duplicated scsi devices, lvm didn't work).
This patch may break scsi modules - I have scsi compiled into the kernel and
didn't test modules.

But it seems obvious to me that with module_init(init_sd), the partition
detection code runs twice: once after hardware detection, and once when the
module_init()-Functions get called.
