    BTW, arbitrated loop absolutely sucks if you're in a hi-av clustered
    environment. By definition, every host's card has to pass along packets
    not meant for itself. If you reboot one of the nodes while I/O is
    happening, that I/O gets clobbered with *NO* indication that it hit the
    bit bucket. Proceed slowly to timeout, do not collect the buffer, do not
    pass go.
