This means the device doesn't understand one or the other
command to query size or layout or that such a command returns
invalid data.

This is an INQUIRY command.

Which fails.

Now I'm confused. How can 'sd0' try to attach when the initial
inquiry already fails?

You want USB_DEBUG and SCSIPI_DEBUG in the kernel and set umassdebug
to something reasonable (the bits are in umassvar.h).
