 Tapes supporting Ultra 320 (packetized) SCSI, SRP (SCSI over
 InfiniBand), and SAS have to change since the protocols don't define how
 to specify untagged tasks.  They shouldn't have much trouble supporting
 the basic task management model with a task set size of one.

         The typical tape environment uses untagged tasks.  Only in
 recent history has anything except untagged tasks been allowed on tape
 drives.
