    No, the problem only seems to exist when the low level SCSI drivers are
    being used as modules, not linked into the kernel.

    Just tried it with 2.4.10-pre10: sym53c8xx and aic7xxx loaded as module
    ==> "cat /proc/partitions" gives infinite output (and my /dev/hda does
    not show up at all). Both drivers compiled into the kernel ==> everything
    is fine; even my /dev/hda shows up.
