I have a BusLogic BT-958 (compiled in), pas16 (module), and usb-storage
(module).

The problem shows up with only the BusLogic scsi device, and the other
modules not loaded. (And it also shows up with 2 or more scsi drivers
loaded) Note that on this machine the pas16 and usb-storage modules
*were* installed, I removed them, and /proc/partitions still looped. (I
can't readily reboot ATM)

Hope this helps,
