We want to make sure that all hostadapters have been unregistered
befor we pull it out of the scsi_hosts list. We do tpnt->present--
for every hostadaper we unregister.

Prior to the new init code, we'd just do something like,

        if (tpnt->present)

I might be wrong though, it could be another bug that I've missed.
