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>
