FWIW I will add my A$0.02 that this can be done. We had a project at
work that chained together a collection of MVME167 boards via their
scsi ports. The OS was an in house developed multiprocessor,
multitasking message passing system which used the scsi bus as the
processor interconnect. Unfortunately, I did not have anything to do
with the scsi hackery but the guys managed to get more than 8
processors on the scsi bus - perhaps they used the LUN address as well.
