SubjectRe: bio too big device

No that is wrong to force all other drives to under perform because on
one. If you are going to impose 255 then pushi it back to 128 were it is
a single scatter list. This issue has bugged me for years and now that we
know the exact model we apply an exception rule to it.

This is one silly bug that I have heard about.
