Re: rescan scsi, oh and a comment about SMB-fs

Well, you can rescan scsi as single devices...

But it would be really convenient to reinitialize a scsi bus
the same way if you unload/reload a module (if its linked
into the kernel).

Is there a way to add a multidisk CD change in one command?

I did
scsi add-single-device 0 0 1 x >/proc/scsi/scsi
for x = [0..6]

7 times (for a Nec 7 disk changer).

The first 3 worked, then it failed...

Also, I'm having a bad interaction between a pioneer 624X 6CD changer
and a Adaptec 1522...instead of panicing, it would make sense to
have a smarter algorithm which says:
if I want to panic && important devices are on this adapter
else mark the device unusable
