bug of qemu 1.2 :  lsi + scsi-block don't boot

scsi-hd works fine.

I have sent a message to the qemu mailing list.
"> I'm trying to boot scsi-block device with lsi controller, and it doesn't boot. (don't find devices).

The LSI driver in SeaBIOS is really a "best effort" driver, it's not fun
to debug it either... just don't use it, pick up the virtio-scsi
backport that is in CentOS and lobby your distro to include it...



But maybe can we use scsi-hd default for lsi when we need to boot?

(virtio-scsi + scsi-block no problem)
