hinv, I think, just probes the bus rather than issuing commands to the various
SCSI devices.

Okay, it's not a driver issue if it persists with different controllers.

If I had to guess, I'd have to say that your drives are bad (same make and

respond to the bus probe but would timeout during msgout.
