You are correct, the kernel in incoming/experimental does not support
scsi-devices other than the A3000's built-in.

Hmmm... well... you are the second one who's asking...

The problem is: Markus kernel is NOT based on the latest kernel sources,
and I don't feel comfortable with the idea of mixing Markus' changes with
the current sources... I'd like to leave this (possibly tricky) part to

I'll take a short look at it in the next days, but I won't dig deeper into
the kernel internals if it doesn't run after a few compile-cycles...
