megaraid_mbox.c:355:    .proc_name                      = "megaraid",
megaraid_sas.c:1046:    .proc_name = "megaraid_sas",

It is still thus in the upstream kernel.  We are not going to carry this diff;
make your request on the linux-scsi mailing list or directly to LSI.  Once it
goes in upstream, then we would be willing to take it in.
