  The 5000/200 SCSI seems to get these errors.  I've got several changes
to the ASC driver that fixes or works around several problems I've been
able to duplicate.  The changes are in -current, but did not make it into

  If you can rebuild your kernel, I can provide you with the changes and
I would welcome any feedback on how well those changes work.
