Arjan Hello

I am trying to boot a machine with 7 LSI disks instances so you
obviously understand that your new feature of asynchronous scsi probe
was more than appealing. 
Two problems:

1. Somehow, if the machine is boot all its cpus the boot hangs[1]. It
succeeds only when maxcpus=1 [2]. 

2. async scsi probing does not seem to speed things at all[3].


Thank you

raz

[2] This machine has 84 processors.

[3] each disk boots about 30 seconds. entire boot take is allways over
210 seconds.The bellow is a snippet of boot dmesg.
