I heard mesh hardware is a bit fragile to drive the SCSI bus properly
and mesh driver doesn't have robustness to handle unexpected errors.
You could call it a bug, but it isn't easy to fix.

GENERIC disables sync transfers on mesh by flags 0xffff
(configuration of the flags is the same with esp(4) though
mesh(4) doesn't support disconnect and tagged queuing),
but wrong device settings may also cause errors which confuse
