Oh, sorry, I forgot that. But I just checked a lenny kernel (2.6.26-2)
and saw that /proc/scsi _is_ present:

$ grep SCSI /boot/config-2.6.26-2-686 |grep PROC
$ grep SCSI /boot/config-2.6.32-3-686 |grep PROC
# CONFIG_SCSI_PROC_FS is not set

So, I can now "officially" say that, as /proc/scsi has been disabled
between lenny and squeeze, yaboot does not work anymore with SATA
enabled PowerPCs. This is a big regression, and is worth a blocking BR
for squeeze, maybe. Does anyone feel like it ?

Thanks everybody for making that clear, and sorry for the guess & try
game that leaded to that.
