Hi everyone,

You will find below my final patch to scsiinfo 4.7. I have submitted this
patch to John DiMarco but I'd rather have people use my patch
instead of the previous 4.7.0.x versions that circulated here. This is
until John gets the time to look into this and perhaps release a new
version of the official 'scsiinfo'. This patch adds 'qus' and 'qlc'
support. Support for these adapters will most likely be improved at a
later time when I get more information for the 'qus' driver.

Between stars - on stars where no human race is
I have it in me so much nearer home
To scare myself with my own desert places.       - Robert Frost
