Hmm.. 20 years ago I was hooking Fujitsu Super-Eagles to Sun3/280 servers.
If you're going to claim that the current SCSI core is *that* far behind, you're
going to have to back it up. Remember that making exaggerated claims is a good
way to make people not listen to the *rest* of your message.

Seen in include/scsi/scsi.h:

/*
* FIXME: bit0 is listed as reserved in SCSI-2, but is
* significant in SCSI-3. For now, we follow the SCSI-2
* behaviour and ignore reserved bits.
*/
So obviously, it's at least the number of years since SCSI-3 was defined,
but no more than the time since SCSI-2. According to http://home.comcast.net/~SCSIguy/SCSI_FAQ/scsifaq.html
SCSI-2 devices started showing up in 1988, and X3.131-1994 came out in 1994.
1996 saw the first SCSI-3 proposals.

I'll give you *one* decade, but not two. :)
