Documentation: move SCSI parameters to their own text file
Move SCSI parameters from kernel-parameters.txt to their own text file. This continues a trend of moving non-core parameters out of kernel-parameters.txt. Signed-off-by: Randy Dunlap <randy.dunlap@oracle.com> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

+ SCSI Kernel Parameters
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+See Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt for general information on
+specifying module parameters.
+
+This document may not be entirely up to date and comprehensive. The command
+"modinfo -p ${modulename}" shows a current list of all parameters of a loadable
+module. Loadable modules, after being loaded into the running kernel, also
+reveal their parameters in /sys/module/${modulename}/parameters/. Some of these
+parameters may be changed at runtime by the command
+"echo -n ${value} > /sys/module/${modulename}/parameters/${parm}".
