That was not the point of my mail.

First I thought that my disks were bad when I got a kernel message and was
about to get the drives replaced.
Using the generic code path also adds also some retries on the disk level.

I prefer to not get hit by a kernel error message about my disks when
it hits the affected area.

I should have known why i don't like seagate drive so much, that 'bug'
and the broken s.m.a.r.t. implementation.
