To the best of my knowledge, this patch never was adapted for 2.4

The only way I know to spin down SCSI disks ist scsi-spin from the
scsi-tools package. Unfortunately, the kernel won't wake up SCSI disks
automagically when needed.

If you don't know how to bring the patch up to date, I'm afraid you have
to resort to IDE drives.
