Warning from kernel about a driver that needs updating


Upon boot, my machine gave me the following warning (taken from the syslog):

Code:
Jul  8 21:16:01 debian kernel: [   29.457712] Driver 'sd' needs updating - please use bus_type methods
I'm not sure exactly what this means, or how I can fix it. If you've any idea, please let me know.

I'm getting the same thing. It's harmless, just ignore it. There was a discussion on the LKML list not so long ago

It's nothing.
