Ugh, so that would necessitate a change there too. As I said before,
I don't really care where it lives. I know the SCSI folks seem bothered
by moving it, but in reality, it's not like this stuff will likely ever
really change. Of the two choices (select entire SCSI stack, or just move
this little bit), I know what I would consider the saner option...
