I suspect this will make things "work" (if the device can't attempt
DMA, no Unsupported Request error will occur).

But I'm concerned that the reason for the DMA might that hpsa is
transferring buffers from system memory to the hpsa device, and if we
arbitrarily terminate those transfers with pci_disable_device(), we
may leave the hpsa device in an inconsistent state, e.g., with a dirty

But we really need guidance from an hpsa expert. I don't know the
filesystem/SCSI/hpsa details.
