Just got 2.1.31 running. During boot, the usual identification of my
SCSI HD and CD-ROM looked different. Usually, I get

ncr53c810-0-<0,0>: using tagged command queueing, up to 4 cmds/lun
Vendor: CONNER Model: CFP1060S 1.05GB Rev: 203C
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Detected scsi disk sda at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
Vendor: TOSHIBA Model: CD-ROM XM-3601TA Rev: 0265
Type: CD-ROM ANSI SCSI revision: 02

However, this time the lines with Vendor and Model info displayed
Vendor: C O N N E R
with one space between all of the letters.

This didn't reflect in the dmesg output - only on the console.
