Congratulation and thanks a lot; this patch works fine on my hppa parisc-linux
against a kernel of mine 2.4.19-pre10(-pa37). Very great :))


PS: I just notice a small detail. In your script you use the variable SDIRMODE
(line 115) but it is not set elsewhere so the mkdir /dev/scsi failled (not
enough argument). (i export SDIRMODE=0755 ?)
