SubjectSCSI tape error with pre2.0.8
I had this problem with earlier kernels too:

# tar tvf /dev/tape
st0: Can't allocate tape buffer.
tar: can't open /dev/tape : Device or resource busy

When in this state, there appears to be no fix except a reboot.
It doesn't get into this state every time.
This is with st.o loaded as a module.
