Disk Druid does not properly identify SCSI disks

Description of problem:
In installation, selectinf Disk Druid for partitioning and/or assigning
Disk Druid displays Model as "Model: unknown SCSI".
In actual fact, a grep thru /proc/scsi/scsi will product the "Vendor: xxx,
string that could be substituted instead of the less appropriate "Unknown
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install 7.2 beta, on a SCSI based system (important that you have SCSI)
2. Select DISK DRUID for partition program.
3. Note that all SCSI disks display "Model: Unknown SCSI"
Note I have a AHA 29160, but as far as /proc/scsi/scsi goes, that doesn't
I'm not able to replicate this in the test lab. Are you still seeing this with
the recent Hampton betas?
At least with Skipjack-re0320.0 (beta 3), Disk Druid displays
proper disc models.
Tested on a Compaq ML330, with a Symbios Logic 53c895a SCSI
controller and 2 SCSI discs . Both discs models are displayed
properly on Disk Druid (Model: COMPAQ PB00921... Model: HP
9.10 GB A ...)
This was fixed during the RH7.2 beta cycle.
I have since verified it as still fixed in RH7.3
