Description Reuben Farrelly 2004-08-29 03:12:53 UTC
Latest mainline (bk) kernels now deprecate the use of the older SCSI 
ioctls of which kmodule references.  This causes the following 
messages to be logged by the kernel when kmodule is run:

program kmodule is using a deprecated SCSI ioctl, please convert it 
to SG_IO
program kmodule is using a deprecated SCSI ioctl, please convert it 
to SG_IO

kmodule is obviously part of initscripts.


----LKML commit comment------

get the kernel to warn about deprecated SCSI ioctls

The non unique SCSI ioctls:

SCSI_IOCTL_SEND_COMMAND
SCSI_IOCTL_TEST_UNIT_READY
SCSI_IOCTL_BENCHMARK_COMMAND
SCSI_IOCTL_SYNC
SCSI_IOCTL_START_UNIT
SCSI_IOCTL_STOP_UNIT

Have been deprecated for a while now.  We should make the kernel
complain when a program actually uses one of them, so users have had
adequate warning before they are removed.
