Adding a task-thread prevents a deadlock during scsi attachment.
Better sanity checking makes it compatible to a OX911 ieee1394/IDE adapter.
It still doesn't like the ieee1394 on a EPIA-M board and I doubt it
works with more than a single drive. The sbp2 layer is ... interesting.
Hot-plugging while being used causes an infinite loop in scsipi (but that
has possibly been fixed recently).
Otherwise I am using it with a backup disk :)
I guess most people want to use the FreeBSD code.
