See the "scan" option in scsictl(8).
You can manually initiate a re-scan of the SCSI bus, look what devices are
there, and then use them. I.e. when you hook up a new SCSI disk, you can
disklabel(8) it. The output of scsictl(8) should be in dmesg(8) output.
This is only used from userland right now (AFAIK?), no in-kernel facility
detects attach/detach of scsi devices, and initiates a rescan
