  All you should need to do is to comment out any items referring to 'asc'
and uncomment the items referring to 'xasc' plus the
#include "arch/pmax/conf/mi.scsi", which defines the scsibus* at xasc?.

  The original commit of the MI SCSI stuff did not allow for including
rz devices (old scsi) with the xasc devices.  I removed that restriction
on March 3.

  I've been using the GENERIC config file with the oldscsi and scsi.pmax
stuff commented out, all the xasc and mi.scsi stuff uncommented, and some
additional xsii configurations for the 3100.
