boot loader: mkofboot couldn't find /proc/scsi (existing Bug #572869).

After manually editing /etc/yaboot.conf, I was facing another problem
on boot: the disk drives seem to be detected in undefined order, and
this makes it difficult to guess correct /dev/sd letter (and yaboot
doesn't accept LABEL= syntax). I have two IDE disks (pata_cmd64x) and
one SCSI disk (the one used here) (aic7xxx).

Third problem was with X. It was running wild and filling the disk
with its log file. The salvation came with package
firmware-linux-nonfree containing the file r128_cce.bin. Still, I'm
unable to log out and in again, as this makes X hang.
