After the release of BSY by the "current target", the "current target" and
"currentinitiator" cease to be current. Perhaps a better heading for these
be "disconnecting target" and "disconnecting initiator".

The 3rd and 4th columns describe a reselect operation while the 5th and
6thdescribe a select operation. Rearranging the columns would break up that
and might make things more confusing.
