Not sure it's related, but it sounds like the hotplug failures being
seen with libsas hotplug. Have not had a chance yet to track it down
further with isci, but mvsas developer Xiangliang Yu is reporting:

.39-rc5 but did not finalize the bisect.

The isci driver sees this and other signatures all seemingly related
to early device tear down and only when pulling a drive with in-flight
