Wouldn't hurt to try (swncq=0 module parameter). However, from some of
the later output in the log you posted, it seems like not only was
there some kind of hiccup resulting in a timeout, but later there were
more Serror flags raised like PHY ready change, CommWake, etc. and the
drive seemed to stop responding entirely. That does tend to smell like
some kind of hardware problem to me..

btrfs exploding is presumably a kernel problem, of course..
