Description of problem:
With an Adaptec 78xx controller and LTO tape drive, I get the following errors:
Dec 17 10:37:59 marx kernel: scsi : aborting command due to timeout : pid 0,
scsi0, channel 0, id 6, lun 0 Write (6) 00 00 02 00 00

the tape drive hangs and is unable to write.  The hardware works fine and was

Additional info:

I had this same problem with kernels before 2.4.18-17.  I was forced to load
AS2.1 on this box for Oracle support and now the tape drive it broken.
