    Oh ... it was reported against 2.6.26-rc1, so the fix is actually
    crrently queued for scsi-misc in my internal test rig. However, the
    reason for the long QA is that there's a potential danger to the fix
    which is clearing the buffer from the reported length to the actual
    length will break a SCSI card that misreports the returned length. It
    seems to be OK on my esoteric SCSI card collection, so I'll push it out
    to scsi-rc-fixes. However, I think it still wants to run in linux-next
    for a few days to see if anyone else can turn up a problem.

    The true issue, of course, is that we won't see a problem until the
    2.6.26 release because the hardware that triggers it isn't in the set
    we're testing with. A less risky fix for 2.6.26-rc9 might be to move
    the clearing into the affected subsystem (usbstorage).
