This happens when you send an INQUIRY with a sglist of 255 bytes and an
ALLOCATION LENGTH of 300 bytes. The spec says "VIRTIO_SCSI_S_UNDERRUN
[is returned] if the content of the CDB requires transferring more data
than is available in the data buffers".

There is no DID_XXX value for underrun, but it's quite useful to have it
diagnosed separately in traces.

What does slave_alloc have to do with scanning? I don't need hostdata,
so I don't have slave_alloc.

Scanning is here:

err = scsi_add_host(shost, &vdev->dev);
if (err)
goto scsi_add_host_failed;
scsi_scan_host(shost);

Hmm... yes, of course...
