The scsitools package contains a nice script to do it, entitled
rescan-scsi-bus.sh.  I believe the package only exists in unstable, and
it contains a few other tools in addition to rescan-scsi-bus.sh, but
since it's just a shell script you can just pull down the source for the
package and run the script from there.

I only wish there was something as complete and well integrated as
FreeBSD's camcontrol program.
