Comment 2 Clay Cooper 2002-03-21 17:36:59 UTC
Not fixed in beta3

Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 2002-03-28 16:49:46 UTC
Something in user space, I think mkinitrd, is opening a scsi device that
doesn't (yet) exist, and kmod is trying to load the scsi host adapter.  I
do not know what scsi device is being accessed, but in any case this is
not a kernel bug.  The kernel is doing the right thing as far as I can tell.

Comment 4 Clay Cooper 2002-04-04 21:27:53 UTC
Reproduced in beta4
