NAME

       transport_configure_device - configure an already set up device

SYNOPSIS

       void transport_configure_device  (struct device * dev);

ARGUMENTS

       dev    generic device representing device to be configured

DESCRIPTION

       The  idea  of  configure  is simply to provide a point within the setup
       process to allow the transport class  to  extract  information  from  a
       device after it has been setup. This is used in SCSI because we have to
       have a setup device to begin using the  HBA,  but  after  we  send  the
       initial inquiry, we use configure to extract the device parameters. The
       device need not have been added to be configured.
