I just got another panic when I tried to plug a Nikon 995 (usb, umass,
scsibus, sd) into a current i386 kernel.  Of note is that the machine
doesn't normally have any scsi's of any sort in it.  When I plugged
the camera into the usb I got the first lines of the kprintf where the
umass is identified.  The next scsibus0 and sd0 lines never occurred.
After a minute of two I turned the camera off again and X11 hung.
Pounding on cntl-alt-f1 rewarded me with a bios memory-test screen, a
15-minute fsck, and few screens of files that went bye-bye.

Now if I boot with the camera plugged in and on everything does work.
(The boot does feel slower, as if the usb is getting beat upon during

Does this ring a bell for anyone?  Does one need to have a scsi disk
active at boot time in order to make umass/scsibus/sd happy?  When I plug
the camera into a similar kernel on a scsi-disk based system I never
get a panic.
