I have some SCSI troubles with 2.6.5-rc1 (from BK) that 2.6.4 didn't

Modprobe, loading the st driver, tries a NULL pointer dereference in
kernel space and my 2nd tape drive isn't found: st1 is not shown. cat
/proc/scsi/scsi (typed after the attempted zero page dereference) hangs
in rwsem_down_read_failed with process state D.

I've re-built the kernel after doing a "make clean"
but to no avail (as expected).
