 * This is a simple module to wait until all the async scans are
 * complete.  The idea is to use it in initrd/initramfs scripts.  You
 * modprobe it after all the modprobes of the root SCSI drivers and it
 * will wait until they have all finished scanning their busses before
 * allowing the boot to proceed

After it waited... it just takes up space.
