ST Driver Support for Quantum LTO-2 and LTO-3 Tape Drives

CDB Length Capability

HBA drivers can enable target drivers to query the maximum supported CDB length by using scsi_ifgetcap. The target driver asks for the capability at attach time and if the HBA driver supports the capability, it returns the maximum length of the CDB in bytes. The target driver can then use this value to make decisions about which CDBs to use for that HBA.
