You'll have to lookup more info in (for example) /sys. You can try /sys/block/<device>... but depending you may also have to look through /sys/class/ (the various scsi_host style entries).

In most cases, except possibly for some (small minority) HBAs, they'll show up as normal SCSI drives (sdX) once probe/scanned.
