        If a device rejects comamnd-queing as requested by the host,
        the fallback switching code in the ahd driver is broken.
        It checks the control byte with the simple-queue mask (this is not
        100% OK, but it would work ...) and than tries to check the tag_type
        if it it is simple queuing or something more sofisticated.
        If it was only simple it will turn of cmd-queuing for that device,
        otherwiese the driver next tries simple queuing mode.
        Here is the bug: while masking the relevant bits, some bits are
        Found by a look into the source.
        It would happen if someone setup a device to use an advanced queing
        mode, but that device does not support it.
        The problem is located in /usr/src/sys/dev/ic/aic79xx.c.
        The following patch will fix this problem:
