Your original algorithm aborts the transfer for a timeout. Same with mine.

The bug must be a elsewhere.

When I get contradictory results it usually means I booted the wrong build
or built the wrong branch.

Actually, I think that adding 128 to the residual is correct in some
sitations, and 256 is correct in other situations.

I see. I guess we have to take buffer swaps into account.

You could add a printk to the timeout branch. If it executes, something is
seriously wrong. E.g.

- break;
+ { pr_err("send timeout %02x, %d/%d\n", NCR5380_read(hostdata->c400_ctl_status), start, len); break; }

BTW, that change carries the risk of 'start' going negative and the
residual exceeding the length of the original transfer.

But I agree with you that there's a problem with the residual.

If I understand correctly, the 53c400 can't do a buffer swap until the
disk acknowledges each of the 128 bytes from the buffer. But I guess the
first buffer is special because the disk will not see the first byte of
the transfer until after the first buffer swap.

And it appears that the last buffer is also special: we have to wait for
CSR_HOST_BUF_NOT_RDY even after start == len otherwise we may not detect a
failure and fix the residual. So I think the datasheet is right; we have
to iterate until the block counter goes to zero.

I think it is safe to say that when CSR_HOST_BUF_NOT_RDY, 'start' is
between 128 and 256 B ahead of the disk. Otherwise, the host buffer is
empty and 'start' is no more than 128 B ahead of the disk.

OK. Thanks for testing. Please try the patch below on top of v6.
