    Someone's removing non-empty directory in procfs. Let's see...
    #ifdef CONFIG_PROC_FS
    remove_proc_entry("megaraid", &proc_root);

    so we remove /proc/megaraid and then procees to remove controllers found
    by driver. Each of those has a subdirectory in /proc/megaraid...

    Fix is trivial:

    diff -urN RC10-bk6-base/drivers/scsi/megaraid.c RC10-bk6-current/drivers/scsi/megaraid.c
