This fixed a problem that showed up in the Fedora development tree a few
weeks before the Fedora Core 4 release, initially as slab corruption, later
as hard crashes on boot up, when slab debugging was disabled for the
release. More details on the history at
The problem is caused by sbp2's use of scsi_host->hostdata to hold a
scsi_id, without explicitly requesting space for it. Since hostdata is
declared as a zero-sized array, we don't get any such space by default, so
it must be explicitly requested. The patch below implements just that.
