ide-scsi weirdness

(repeat ad-nausiam)

This is the most annoying thing I have ever seen. It started when I upgraded to 2.6.3 the other day. This didn't happen in 2.6.2 and before. I still have a 2.4.25 kernel running and ide-scsi devices work properly. I don't get it. It doesn't log anywhere except for being echoed in the pty. Programs that try to access the ide-scsi devices hang indefinitely and this loops in the console window. It never stops and only a reboot fixes it. I don't know what's different or what happened but I've searched everywhere and can't even figure out what that means, let alone a solution.

ide-scsi is deprecated in the 2.6 kernels which may be the problem. In the 2.6 kernels that I've used, you really don't need it for cd writing however the usb mass storage devices still use it.
