What I would like to see, is that the scsipi layer does the reset.
I.e. that scsibus_config() uses a new ADAPTER_REQ_BUS_RESET request
to reset a specified channel, then waits SCSI_DELAY seconds, and
then starts probing.
* issue new req ADAPTER_REQ_GET_PARAMS to channel, which may
contain things like "should we reset this channel or not",
and perhaps other info
* if reset is wanted, issue ADAPTER_REQ_BUS_RESET
* wait SCSI_DELAY seconds.
* start probing.
Having ADAPTER_REQ_BUS_RESET also means that you can move the bus reset
ioctl into the scsipi layer, and not have each driver implement it.
