Previously, cciss devices did not have an entry in the udev database. This was caused by the fact that these devices do not provide information in the /sys file system, making it hard to create persistent symbolic links in /dev/disk. With this update, the scsi_id utility is used to query the ID of cciss devices, so that udev can create the database entries as expected.
