scsi-block does not even work with current ;-) qemu.git as there is a 
bug. But it will be fixed for qemu 1.2. But anyway scsi-generic is much 
more interesting. It's a lot faster.

Haven't tested but as virtio-scsi-pci was introduced in 3.2 anyway i 
won't care much about older kernels. What do you thik? (i mean 3.4 is 
not far away from 3.2)
