your patch seems truncated,
but anyway I fixed that today

Yes, I'm bitten hard by this sgio problem : TUR seem reliable when done on
/dev/sg* and not reliable when done on /dev/sd*.

As I don't want to add to complexity of the /dev/sd -> /dev/sg translation, I
would like to know if it is possible to correct this in the kernel ...

Another, related, problem is that readsector0 is unsuable too : read() seems
very upset with the "reservation" of the individual paths by the device mapper.

Insights ?
