Bug#755995: External USB HD problem in linux kernel 3.16 with usb-uas module
After upgrading linux to 3.16-rc6 I have problems with my Seagate expansion hard drive.
While mounting it or writing to it, my whole system quite often freezes and needs a hard reset.
It seems to be a known UAS (USB Attached SCSI) issue and there is a workaround, see
The mentioned workaround fixes the issue by telling the USB-UAS module to ignore the device.
To avoid this issue the UAS module should be patched to handle the hard disk correctly.
