Description starlight 2007-12-04 07:29:35 EST
Description of problem:

Sometime in the last few releases /dev/st0l and /dev/nst0l
stopped working.  Probably /dev/st0[am] and /dev/nst[am]
don't work anymore either.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

tar -f /dev/st0l

Actual results:

Variety of strange random messages in 'dmesg'.
Changes ever time.  Here's a good one:

st0: Block limits 2 - 16777214 bytes.                                           
(scsi0:A:0:0): Unexpected busfree in Command phase, 1 SCBs aborted, PRGMCNT ==
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Dump Card State Begins <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
scsi0: Dumping Card State at program address 0x197 Mode 0x11
Card was paused

Expected results:

It should work.

Additional info:

/dev/st0 work just fine.  /dev/st0l *definitely* used to work.
