Well, of course, but I don't have any drives at that target. I'm just
reserving it so that the "sd" number equals "bus*8 + target". It is much
easier doing this when you have many SCSI busses, and it avoids the "sd3
and sd4 just became sd4 and sd5, so /var/spool/news won't mount" problem.
And removing the sd7, ad15, and sd23 entries didn't make any difference. I
assume that if I hardcoded just the disks I have then it would work, but I
don't want to have to rebuild a kernel just because I add a disk on
scsibus1. This isn't Windows!
Any other ideas? Where is the code that does the matching?
