Ek... Your problem is similar too.

If it turns out to be drive's fault, I'm afraid there's no other
solution than blacklisting those drives on all controllers. It's
protocol violation on drive's side, so I don't think there is an easy
way out here except for firmware upgrade. I'm asking people about this,
so please be patient.
