As mentioned, rescan-scsi-bus.sh is keeping references to /proc/scsi as
a fall back only, as it's meant to work kernel independent. Per default
it'll be using /sys, and will happily work without /proc/scsi.

So it's really only /proc/scsi/sg which carries some meaningful
information; maybe we should move/copy it to somewhere else.

I personally like getting rid of /proc/scsi.

Cheers,
