Just out of curiosity, why did you not address your email to the author
or committer of this patch? Surely they would be the people in the
best position to answer your questions.

Fixed.

I had been researching this issue and did not find any useful notes on the mailing lists--hopefully this will help others if there's a copy of the response on the mailing list.

These drives [1] [2] are the ones noted as affected when used on Linux [1] plugged in directly to a Linux PC (w/USB 3.0/XHCI) and [2] when in a USB enclosure with a JMicron SATA Bridge.

[1] WDBBGB0080HBK-NESN - https://www.wd.com/products/external-storage/my-book-new.html#WDBBGB0080HBK-NESN
[2] WD40EZRZ-22GXCB0 - https://www.wd.com/products/internal-storage/wd-blue-pc-desktop-hard-drive.html (In a USB enclosure with a JMicron SATA Bridge - per Markus)

Regards,

Justin.
