Subject[BK PATCH] SCSI host num allocation improvement
After doing a large round of debugging and fixups for ieee1394, I
started getting really aggrivated with the way that the scsi layer
allocates host numbers by forever incrementing from the last one.

Before too long, I was getting scsi137, etc. Not only did it look bad,
it was bad. Cdrecord only scans bus 0-15, which means after a few
hotplugs with your USB or Firewire CD/DVD recorder, you wont be able to
burn to it. Yes, I know cdrecord needs to be fixed aswell, but I've had
my fill of trying to convince the author of anything, so I wont be
sending him a patch.

Anyway, this patch enables a race free (I hope) allocation of host
numbers. And it will pick the lowest available number first. I've only
tested it with ieee1394 sbp2, so real scsi users should give it a go.


You can import this changeset into BK by piping this whole message to:
'| bk receive [path to repository]' or apply the patch as usual.
