The mainbus0 would just call the A4000T SCSI driver frontend probe if it
detects an A4000 machine of any kind. And the driver frontend, which needs
to know about the addresses anyway, could test some register values or 
similar stuff.

The method described by me above is what the A3000/T scsi driver
frontend does.

BTW, there is some other message in the list about s.b. (was it M.
Hitch?) who needs a guinea pig to test his A4000T scsi detection :-)
