Description of problem:
After update from AS2.1 to AS3, kernel only scans and registers scsi devices with 
LUNs from 0~7. The scsi devices are accessed from a QLA2342 FC HBA throught a 
mylexFFX2 FC RAID card, which represents itself as ANSI SCSI 2.

Add this line to drivers/scsi/scsi_scan.c fixed it.
   {"LSI", "ProFibre 4000R", "*", BLIST_SPARSELUN | BLIST_LARGELUN},

Comment 2 Tom Coughlan 2004-12-23 08:47:34 EST
Okay, we will add this device to the whitelist in U5. Thanks.
