This is reflecting on my previous moving ACPI nodes out of 'Unknown devices'
SCSI (ATA) devices are also listed as unknown devices.
The ATA device tree we are being passed is pretty hard identify to objects in. This is a patch to identify SCSI devices on the scsi bus and display some basic information on them and breaks them out from 'Unknown devices' as SCSI/ATA end points are pretty important. See screenshots for an example of how it works.
I am not sure this is the final direction things need to go, the kernel identification of ATA/IDE controllers right now is pretty funky. I put SCSI devices in 'Computer' category for now as they don't make sense under the 'Mass storage controller' category... Ideally they need to be under the controllers in the category view... but thats not implimented yet. I went with the side of caution.
A few cosmetic tab repairs are also included.
