Hm... if I put in some debug printks in the qc_issue code, I get the
same symptoms. I've observed that once again we get hung up on ATA
commands where the tag number > 0. I also noticed this pattern:
1. ATA command w/ tag 0 (command A) issued.
2. Command A goes out to sas-ata.
2. ATA command w/ tag 1 (command B) issued.
3. Command A completes
4. Command B goes out to sas-ata.
[...]
5. Command B times out.

Very odd that this all works if there are no printks. I don't see
anything obvious that would suggest why this apparent race seems to
happen--unless there's some conflict between issuing an ATA command
while completing another one.
