If I remember right the author of the patch was trying to reduce
the redundancy of the same code in several scsi drivers and do
a more generic setting of the scsi direction flag. This is a pretty
common problem, I've seen the same limitation in the Adaptec 3200
driver as well as in other OS. It would be great if some kind
of fix got into the main tree, THANKS!!
