This worked! Both suggestion actually worked. First tried the
buffersize change and it worked. Then I patched my kernel and rebooted
and the new sg module also worked.
In /var/log/messages there were no indications of anything not working
for the scsi system. The only scsi messages occured when I inserted
the scsi modules (device detected and stuff like that, no errors).
