SubjectRe: [PATCH] esp_scsi: Clear Transfer Count registers before PIO transfers

I believe you also need to send a DMA NOP command to the ESP:

"Values
written to these two registers will be stored inter-
nally and loaded into the transfer counter by any
DMA command. These values remain unchanged
while the transfer counter decrements. Thus,
successive blocks of equal size may be transferred
without reprogramming the count. They may be
reprogrammed any time after the previous DMA
operation has started, whether it has finished or
not."

"Any DMA command will load the transfer count into
the counter. A DMA NOP (80h) will load the
counter while the non-DMA NOP (OOh) will not."

(53CF64_96-2 data book)

Without the DMA NOP, the transfer counts will remain as they were left
by the prematurely terminated DMA command.

Cheers,

Michael
