I got some independent confirmation that this works.
The problem isn't with the VS3100 hardware. It's the drive --
rz23 drives are SCSI-1 so we need to inhibit disconnect/reselect.
Of course the patch I sent is worthless as it stands. Performance is
bad enough without inhibiting disconnection for all devices. Does
anyone have ideas about how we can set the bits for SCSI-1 devices
entropy -- it's not just a good idea, it's the second law.
