Do you have SCSI disks ?
I guess this is related to recent changes to have SCSI disks probed from the
kernel threads instead of proc0.
We probably need to have a global flag (or better: counter) which tells when
the disks autoconfig is done. We need this because I'd also like to defer IDE
devices probing.
What, actually, make sure that raidframe autoconfig has run before
cpu_rootconf() is called ?
