One observation re: the "stock" (ie non-Feral) Qlogic driver, is
that it typically does VERY poorly when asked to handle a SCSI bus
with both HDDs and CDROMs on it.

If your MIATA is set up that way, try either:

1. replacing the SCSI CDROM with an IDE one, or
2. moving the CDROM (or HDDs) to a different SCSI controller.
