I am writing in regards to a question that I have about the WRITE BUFFER 
SCSI command.
In particular, my question pertains to the data sent from the 
application client for the echo
buffer mode (0AH).
The specification (SPC-3) states that "Data shall be sent aligned on 
four-byte boundaries."
Does this mean that the device server should check that the data is 
aligned on four-byte
boundaries and terminate the command with a CHECK CONDITION status if 
the data
isn't aligned properly, or, to be a little less harsh, properly align 
[down] the data if it isn't?
This is what I gather from my reading of the specifications, but since 
it's not explicitly
stated, I cannot be sure.
Thank you for your time.
