Ran for an hour before I stopped it. Before that I did a
echo 1 > /sys/bus/pseudo/drivers/scsi_debug/opts

which causes a lot of noise in syslog. Then I could see every command was
being rejected with "LBA out of range". So I restarted scsi_debug with this:

modprobe scsi_debug max_luns=8 sector_size=4096 virtual_gb=2000 ndelay=5000

To give 8 pseudo scsi disks of 2 TB size. Then it worked, this from syslog:
sd 0:0:0:0: scsi_debug: tag=0x7e, cmd 08 f0 a8 77 d3 be 87 5d da 65 79 3f c7

That is certainly strange, a READ(6) [deprecated] with 13 bytes in the command!
But it doesn't seem to hurt scsi_debug. Still running 15 minutes later ...
