Hi all,
The LASI SCSI code didn't make it's way into the linux-2.3 tree.
Code in linux/drivers/scsi/lasi* can be migrated now.

Someone else could start trying to make PCI NCR SCSI also work under Dino.
Dino code does detect PCI devices and tulip (100BT) driver has started
talking to it's device. Need to enable CONFIG_GSC_DINO from the default
".config". This requires an A, B, or C-class machine to test though.
