REGISTER scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/disc CFUNCTION GLOBAL mksymlink $devname
REGISTER scsi/host0/bus0/target1/lun0/disc CFUNCTION GLOBAL mksymlink $devname
REGISTER scsi/host1/bus0/target0/lun0/disc CFUNCTION GLOBAL mksymlink $devname
REGISTER scsi/host1/bus0/target1/lun0/disc CFUNCTION GLOBAL mksymlink $devname

if you insist on calling them sda etc you may comment out MKOLDCOMPAT but
beware of consequences.

but this breaks anyway if SCSI host numbers change (e.g. if you plug in new
HBA) and for that there is no solution
