<snipped patch/>

Maybe you may like to consider this effort. Apart from allowing
extra hosts (hundreds of them via boot/module option) it is
like a RAM disk. The default RAM allocation is 8 MB which
can be overridden by a boot/module option. You can
run fdisk on it, make a fs, mount it, etc.


It runs properly on SMP (Eric's didn't) and supports a
reasonable number of SCSI commands including READ_16 and
WRITE_16. I used the latter 2 commands to test (via sg)
that the recently added 16 byte CDBs worked.

BTW I kept scsi_debug.h as most other SCSI adapter drivers
have .h and .c components.
