(thanks, Roland for pointing out that I'm incorrect about code being called)
Come up with a sensible suggestion, and I'll listen to you. Code isn't the issue. API is the issue.
Well, that itself is a suggestion.

No, I can't, which is why I find it hard to like the idea of "use sysfs". I have no particular love for using a module like this, but my preferred way (a new verb for /proc/scsi/scsi) isn't liked by others.
Another command to /proc/scsi/scsi isn't a bad thought at all, considering we're not _inventing_ a *new* /proc/not-related-to-processes interface, but simply extending one that already exists. But then James / others are also somewhat justified in shooting that down. I bet a lot of people would find that even worse than this whole module affair. - To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe kernel-packagers" in the body of a message to majordomo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
