yes. but you probably aren't using all scsi drivers at the same time ;-)

i probably don't like answer 'read the source' as much as you.
that's why i _also_ give the answer.
but i think it's nice for other people to know where you can find such
before your post i didn't know.
so i've checked myself and answered to you.
but for people new to linux they may think it's kind of a 'mystery' to know
all options... so i point them to where i find it, _even_ if i agree with the
fact it's hard to find what you need...
So the purpose was not to remind you anything, it was just the way i think
best to educate everyone. Please forgive me if you took it otherway.
