Sorry for the delay, but i wanted to check some swap-related things before
providing another test-kernel (which didn't work out ;-/)

Anyway, I've uploaded an 1.2G kernel for 3100's on our ftp-server ifib4
which should now correctly probe for the existence of the SCSI controllers
before using them, so that people without SCSI/SCSI might use that.
I couldn't really test it since I'm having SCSI/SCSI only...


PS: I've temporarily added some debug messages to support bug reports ;-)
