I was thinking about dmesg messages for SCSI; which device driver(s) does
the Linux kernel use (dmesg), which PCI interface card is emulated
(lspci), how's the emulated hardware getting configured by the Linux
kernel, etc.  Then we have to see whether an equivalent device driver
exists for GNU Mach (or whether it can easily be integrated).
