This doesn't look promising. What it needs is for the sbp2 layer
to handle errors better.  I think freebsd may currently be ahead
of linux in this area.

Do a hotplug connect, then do a dmesg or tail /var/log/messages
to see where it went.   A 'cat /proc/scsi/scsi' should show
the devices with scsi emulation as well as any real scsi devices.

I have two types of external cases and both are detected when hotplugged
but not during boot.
