    Almost all IDE tape drives require ide-scsi/st modules for one. I'm not
    sure of the problems in the 2.5 case, in the 2.4 case the big one was
    that both IDE and SCSI want to control reset/recovery and reissue of
    commands. That turns into a nasty mess and 2.4 now lets the IDE layer do
    it, with SCSI just backing off. That may well be the right model for
    2.5.x - ie the reset eh handler just waits for the IDE layer to kill the
    command. The other one was races in the reset code which 2.4 I think now
    has fixed, which will bite non scsi users but less often
