If the initiator detects an error the proposal says it is to send
INITIATOR DETECTED Error message. Is this message supposed to be sent
on the same reselection as the data was delivered on? With the
automation most SCSI chips have today it seems the target would have
disconnected and possibly started working on one or more other IOs
before the Initiator has had a chance to process the completion
interrupt and verify the data.
Also, I'm assume this proposal is aimed at parallel SCSI. However,
under FC the INITIATOR DETECTED Error message is even more problematic.
I'd suggest dropping the INITIATOR DETECTED Error message part. What is
the target going to do with it anyway?
