Follow up to parisc-linux@lists.parisc-linux.org only please.
(ie this isn't a debian linux issue)

Seems only 53c700.c prints this msg. Is this the right driver?

Normally you shouldn't see this *if* the device supports tagged commands.
I can never remember the SCSI driver options (the parisc-linux FAQ has 
the URL to them) but one of them will either disable or limit 
"queue depth" for Queue Tags and that should take care of it.

BTW, normally you want to post the /proc/scsi/scsi info for
the devices in question.

Panic would be worse ;^)
