Kernel panics when writing to a tape and reaching end-of-tape (EOT),
end-of-media (EOM).
Tape drive and controller are:

ahc0 at pci2 dev 10 function 0: Adaptec 29160B Ultra160 SCSI adapter
ahc0: interrupting at ioapic0 pin 22 (irq 10)
ahc0: aic7892: Ultra160 Wide Channel A, SCSI Id=7, 32/253 SCBs
scsibus0 at ahc0: 16 targets, 8 luns per target
st0 at scsibus0 target 6 lun 0: <HP, Ultrium 1-SCSI, E16V> tape removable
st0: density code 64, variable blocks, write-enabled
st0: sync (25.00ns offset 15), 16-bit (80.000MB/s) transfers

Panic is:

panic: kernel diagnostic assertion "(bp->b_flags & B_ERROR) == 0" failed: file 
"/export/netbsd/netbsd-4/src/sys/kern/kern_physio.c", line 201
Stopped in pid 116.1 (physiod) at netbsd:cpu_Debugger+0x4:        popl    %ebp

I haven't tried this with current sources, but looking at the code, I
can't see any major divergencies.
st was running with default configuration, which seems to imply variable
block size and no early warning at EOM.


Generate enough data to fill a tape, and keep writing. In the case
above, I was writing 64 KB blocks.
