Dmesg from bigmem kernel
Not fixed in beta3
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.
Reproduced in beta4
Reproduced in Hampton gold.
