Okay, I've got a basic idea of what may be going on.  The resets that are
getting sent are triggering another probe, which then triggers a reset,
which triggers a probe...and so on.

So here is another patch that should work for you:


I have commented out the quirk for this drive, and the driver will now only
start the SMR probe on drives that claim to be SMR-capable.  So, for the
vast majority of drives out there right now, it won't even start the extra
probe steps.
  It fixes this issue. I was able to boot with your latest patch.
Great!  I'll check it in with that fix as well as a quirk entry.  That way,
if we have other reasons later on to issue a read log, we'll know that
it doesn't work for those drives.
Might be worth seeing if smartmontools can read the log from that drive before committing the quirk as a double check.
