    Above is from scsi_set_pci_device() call.

    Above are from scsi_register_host().

    Looks like we have two device_register(&shost->host_driverfs_dev) calls,
    one in scsi_set_pci_device, and one in scsi_register_host(). I think
    Mike meant to delete the one in scsi_register_host, but I can't tell
    for certain which one should go away.

    And this must might be why I can't shutdown (i.e. no auto reboot).

    So in 2.5.44 have:

    scsi_register_host() calls
    attach [ncr_attach] calls
    scsi_set_pci_device calls
    call to device_register() again in scsi_register_host

    This removes the scsi_register_host() one, I can shutdown/reboot
    with this patch, I didn't dump anything else or try rmmod's:

    A Scsi_Host_Template is passed in, it loops over Scsi_Hosts to find
    everyone that is using the Scsi_Host_Template, the names are confusing
    as well as the code.

    Yes and yes ...
