-- One of my disks is an old Maxtor LXT-213S that apparently doesn't
understand the LUN concept. The -current kernel thinks it's eight drives,
one at each LUN.
An appropriate entry in scsiconf.c will `fix' that. There's already:
"MAXTOR ", "LXT-213S SUN0207", "", SDEV_NOLUNS},
but I presume that doesn't match your drive.
Fortunately, this didn't get in my way too badly -- it
did push one of my other drives up to `sd10', after which I was not able
to mount it (`mount', oddly, complained that the directory I was trying to
mount on did not exist, when it clearly did) --
Are you sure it wasn't complaining because the device node in /dev
-- `mount' doesn't seem to know about the new clean flags -- first `fsck'
says that a filesystem doesn't need to be checked, and then `mount' says
that it does.
That certainly doesn't happen on any of *my* machines. Sounds like
someone biffed the snapshot.
