It's because the 1.0 kernel didn't contain a BusLogic driver (hence kcaha
and kcbt).  Supposedly the drivers were recently changed so they could figure
out which was which, but the unified kernel I tried a month or two back
certainly failed miserably on my 1542B, and it looks like the very latest
can't really hack it, either.
