[PATCH] sbp2 slab corruption fix
This fixed a problem that showed up in the Fedora development tree a few weeks before the Fedora Core 4 release, initially as slab corruption, later as hard crashes on boot up, when slab debugging was disabled for the release. More details on the history at The problem is caused by sbp2's use of scsi_host->hostdata[0] to hold a scsi_id, without explicitly requesting space for it. Since hostdata is declared as a zero-sized array, we don't get any such space by default, so it must be explicitly requested. The patch below implements just that.
