Oh yeah, there is a tool, lsscsi, that knows all this and hides it for you.

Do you need a C type of library? I guesss anaconda guys need it right? lsscsi is just a program, but I think we could libify that to hide all the nasty scsi sysfs stuff. There also fun driver model changes that affect scsi where sometimes there are links to devices and in new kernels it changes, and I do not think anyone wants to mess with.

For libvirt we prefer to have a C library where ever possible. If that
does not exist though, we will (reluctantly) resort to invoking commands
like lsscsi and parsing their output.

Ok.

Are we shooting for RHEL6/f11 with this or is this a RHEL 5.4 item?
