Default Bug#618258: linux-image-2.6.32-5-amd64: readd legacy /proc/scsi support

Package: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.32-30
Severity: wishlist

First and foremost, I've already browsed several bug reports dating back to 2008 that have requested this to be turned back on (mostly in the now nonexistent scsiadd package). The general attitude is "bug your software vendor if they don't support sysfs" but really, you can't expect this out of everyone. Especially a place like HighPoint who hasn't touched their drivers since 10/22/2009. I respect the position but, in my opinion, you're only hurting consumer level Debian users by turning extremely minor things like this off.

I upgraded my home Linux server from lenny to squeeze last weekend via a fresh install onto a new drive and my final to-do item was fix the CLI interface for my common, consumer-level, current-gen, hardware RAID5 card: a HighPoint RocketRaid 2310. Their CLI client that can be configured to email me when the array degrades simply stopped working after the upgrade. Compiled fine, but when ran it didn't do anything but claim the "driver wasn't loaded" even though I was clearly using the RAID array and seeing it in dmesg.

A tiny bit of Googling led me to this blog post from 1/12/2011: http://cosmicb.no/?p=136 which correctly explained hptraidconf was broken because Debian decided to turn legacy /proc/scsi support off in squeeze.

I think it should be turned back on to continue to support devices that use it that are unlikely to see their kernel tainting drivers updated to not use /proc/scsi.

Thanks and have a fine day. I sadly expect this to be quickly marked as wontfix with zero discussion because that's my experience with filing Debian bug reports.
