Yes, I've found this issue with the latest kernels with someone else as
well. Do any of the SCSI driver developers out there know what might be
causing this? Apparently, when there are more than one Adaptec SCSI
controllers (doesn't seem to matter which ones, but most notably a narrow
controller and a wide controller combo), the SCSI driver freaks out and
does not recognize either properly.
