System: NetBSD colwyn 1.1A NetBSD 1.1A (COLWYN) #0: Sun Feb 11 23:35:43 GMT+0100 1996 tron@colwyn:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/COLWYN i386

With a kernel compiled from 960215 sources I get an I/O error if I try to
access to my SCSI streamer with "tar". After reinstalling a 960210 kernel
it works fine again. My streamer is a Tandberg TDC 3660 connected to a
NCR 53c810.

tron@colwyn:~>tar xvf /dev/nrst0
tar: can't open /dev/nrst0 : Input/output error

Sorry, no idea.
