Yes, it _is_ normal.

If you say it.

a "normal" setup as I consider it today allows you to only put in one
disk.

Quite a narrow definition of "normal" you have there.
I say normal is what's within 2 sigma.

The question is: what setup should be catered for with the default
parameters.

Boring one-controller setups are within that 2 sigma, but are not
a majority within it, for server role setups are still quite strong,

Oh yes. And server setups with more than one, maybe two controllers, as
everyone is using local disks on servers (for anything else than booting
the OS). Certainly.

I have yet to find those in the "few" servers at work.

and I hear we are still waiting for The Year Of The Linux Desktop.

I rest my case.
* I don't do fresh installs anymore anyway.
* No matter what you choose in Yast, it is not respected anyway.

So go ahead, fix all those 17-disks-attached-to-15-controllers cases so
that they work fine with the default settings.

And make sure, that the boring one-controller setups (as well as the
equally boring two-controllers-of-the-same-type setups) are breaking
subtly all the time as they are now.
Sounds like a plan.
