I found a way to do this without additionnal support from scsiconf.c for now.
But it relies on SCACCELL being called for each device found, and there
are a few resources that are wasted (but it's host RAM, not script resources).
So it's acceptable for now, I'll commit the driver.
But I woun't mind a better support for this :)
