Oh, yeah, to explain why this occurs- at the back end of a command, if it's
not a fast posting completion, I check a bit to see whether or not the f/w =
renegotiated a new speed- if so I schedule a query to get the new parameter=
so they can be announced to the outer layers (which for NetBSD just prints
them out). Unfortunately, the Qlogic f/w seems to set this multiple times.
