The problem is a mistake in your kernel configuration. The above lines
show, that you have compiled the kernel with the standard NCR driver.
(Note the "NCR53c{7,8}xx"). This driver does not support the proc-fs.

Actually, you have to turn off the 53c7,8xx driver in order to
activate the 53C8xx.

Note, that you can't play with tagged queuing at runtime. Since 2.0.4,
this feature is disabled.
