Mostly says that our driver doesn't talk "correctly" to the hardware.
The panic in this place is of course pretty silly.

        if (hb == sc->heartbeat)
                panic("ciss: dead");    /* XX reset! */

Linux just ignores the heartbeat counter. I'd replace the panic with
a possibly ratechecked printf() and try if that works.
