One of our servers uses SAS HP drives, so the device is mounted in /dev/cciss/c0d0.

When we try to run hddtemp on /dev/cciss/c0d0, it reports that it can't determine the bus type.

For now, we're using smartctl in order to get the temperature.

>>> blink ~ # cat /proc/partitions

major minor  #blocks  name

   1     0       4096 ram0
   1    15       4096 ram15

>>> blink ~ # hddtemp /dev/cciss/c0d0

ERROR: /dev/cciss/c0d0: can't determine bus type (or this bus type is unknown)
