Subject[PATCH 66/71] ncr5380: Fix soft lockups
When exercising dmx3191d using sequential IO from dd, the driver is sent
512 KiB WRITE commands and 128 KiB READs. For a PIO transfer, the rate is
is only about 300 KiB/s, so these are long-running commands.

Because of the rudimentary design of the chip, it is necessary to poll the
SCSI bus signals during PIO and this tends to hog the CPU. The driver will
accept new commands while others execute, and this causes a soft lockup
because the workqueue item will not terminate until the issue queue is
emptied.

Fix the non-esponsiveness and soft lockup issues by calling cond_resched()
after each command is completed and by limiting the transfer size for
drivers that don't use DMA in information transfer phases.
