Subject2.2.1 lockup (SCSI related)

When I do a `cat /dev/st0' on my system (or access the tape in any other way),
the message

Wrong buffer length supplied for request sense (256)

is displayed on the console and the system locks up, VC switching
still works. It's perfectly reproducable.

EIP is around 0xc017a9e5, sometimes inside down_interruptible(); the system
loops forever in the while(1) loop of scsi_error.c.

Tested on a Pentium120, AHA-1542, /dev/st0 is an EXB-8200. It works with 2.0.x.
