I noticed this when I started a test build for my workstation
with hopes of moving it over to 2.6.0-test11:

drivers/scsi/BusLogic.c: In function `BusLogic_InitializeProbeInfoListISA':

Presumably someone is going to soon obsolete check_region, 
which will then break the Buslogic driver and most of
my machines.

Is anyone working on this driver these days?

Apparently not.  The driveres/scsi/Advansys.c driver suffers similarly 
from the "check_region" thingy, but only twice.  For the present, the 
effect is apparently a warning only.
