Re: [ANNOUNCE][RELEASE]: megaraid unified driver version 2.20.0.B1

- mraid_scsi_host_alloc/mraid_scsi_host_dealloc should go away, just
define scsi_host_alloc/scsi_host_put wrappers for 2.4.
- mraid_scsi_set_pdev should go away, it's not needed in 2.6 at all
because scsi_add_host does all the work and for 2.4 just use
scsi_set_pci_device directly.
- all the SCP2FOO defines should go away, the 2.6 variants work for 2.4
- mraid_set_host_lock should go, just use scsi_assign_lock and define
it for 2.4.

- why do you need the scb pool managment code at all? You can dynamically
allocate scbs in ->queuecommand
- can you explain the need for all the mraid_pci_blk_pool? I.e. why the
generic dma pool routines don't work for megaraid

all files:
- please avoid using scsi.h and hosts.h from drivers/scsi in favour of
the include/scsi/ headers, especially get rid of all the Scsi_Foo
