No, its not, I've had the SCSI reset problems in 2.0.x and 2.1.x.
When it goes to reset the SCSI bus it never recovers, effectively
killing the machine as it blocks the interrupts and goes into a wait in a
loop, you get short (as in under a second) bursts every 30 sec or so
where the machine can do anything..
