Looks like the driver is loading older firmware than the SRM console.

Bad idea.. Had quite some trouble with an Aspen Alpine who had an
SRM loading old f/w. On that machine I had to make the *driver* load newer

I'm not sure about the isp driver for NetBSD, but for FreeBSD there
is a config file option to disable the f/w loading by the driver:

#       SCSI_ISP_NO_FWLOAD_MASK - mask of isp unit numbers (obviously
#                                 a max of 32) that you wish to disable
#                                 to disable the loading of firmware on.

Maybe useful to check if the NetBSD isp driver has something like this?

The Miata GL does not have the Pyxis problem.
