SCSI Kernel Parameters

See The kernel’s command-line parameters for general information on specifying module parameters.

This document may not be entirely up to date and comprehensive. The command modinfo -p ${modulename} shows a current list of all parameters of a loadable module. Loadable modules, after being loaded into the running kernel, also reveal their parameters in /sys/module/${modulename}/parameters/. Some of these parameters may be changed at runtime by the command echo -n ${value} > /sys/module/${modulename}/parameters/${parm}.

scsi_mod.scan=  [SCSI] sync (default) scans SCSI busses as they are
                discovered.  async scans them in kernel threads,
                allowing boot to proceed.  none ignores them, expecting
                user space to do the scan.
