The A3000 scsi driver (or maybe the sbic.c in general) does soemthing
wrong wrt. short/odd-sized data transfers.
If you want to be a hero, fix this... problem is that most people dont
have odd-size-transfering hardware connected to their A3000 (e.g., my
tape drive, and of course my disks, are 512-byte-blocked).
