           Summary: CONFIG_SCSI_WAIT_SCAN doesn't show in menuconfig
           Product: Other
           Version: 2.5
     KernelVersion: 2.6.23-rc2
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
              Tree: Mainline
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: Configuration
        AssignedTo: zippel at linux-m68k.org
        ReportedBy: virdiq at gmail.com

Most recent kernel where this bug did not occur: N/A
Distribution: Mainline Gentoo AMD64 (Vanilla Kernel Sources)
Hardware Environment: AMD64/SMP
Software Environment: gcc-4.1.2 & glibc-2.5 (Official stable Gentoo builds)

Problem Description:

menuconfig entry for CONFIG_SCSI_WAIT_SCAN is written to .config but does not
show up in the configuration tree. Removing/unsetting this option manually from
.config will result in Menuconfig writing it back to .config. Setting it to be
built into the kernel will also result in menuconfig wanting to set it to =m
(instead of =y as manually defined).

This configuration option is probably meant to show up under:
Device Drivers ---> SCSI Device Support ---> Some SCSI devices...(blah blah)

The same issue occurred in 2.6.23-rc1.
