Ok, please reproduce in 2.4.21-pre5, its end_request handling is a lot
different. If you just want a one-liner, I'd suggest trying something
ala this on 2.4.20 and see if it makes any difference:

--- drivers/scsi/ide-scsi.c~ 2003-03-13 18:13:00.876624632 +0100
+++ drivers/scsi/ide-scsi.c 2003-03-13 18:13:14.167604096 +0100
@@ -313,7 +313,7 @@
byte status, ireason;
int bcount;
idescsi_pc_t *pc=scsi->pc;
- struct request *rq = pc->rq;
+ struct request *rq = HWGROUP(drive)->rq;
unsigned int temp;

#if IDESCSI_DEBUG_LOG

But really, 2.4.21-pre is much more interesting to reproduce on.
