BusLogic drivers newer than November 5 should _not_ probe
and match Adaptec devices as BusLogic. If this happens on
a kernel built from Nov 5 sources or newer, send a PR.
If not, you can build a kernel without Adaptec SCSI support, or
update your kernel sources to 1.2B.
(what possible relevance did this have to tech-net?)
