The adapter driver doesn't hold that assertion. You can get a partial
transfer and an error condition at the same time from SCSI. Some error
paths in some drivers reset xs->resid, but that's not used very consistently.
The sd driver assures that the physio assertion is satisfied in sddone(),
but the tape driver doesn't.
The assertion itself is also something "new". The original code would
accept a partial read (usually an EOM condition) that could also return
The combination of drivers that reset the residual after an error and
an assertion that checks the fake residual is a bit strange too.
