as it turns out my workaround (setting allow_restart=1) isn't all that
useful after all. There are no more i/o errors because the drive just
never goes to standby mode anymore (at least 'hdparm -y /dev/sda' does
not seem to have any effect anymore). I don't really understand why - do
sas drives ever get to standby mode? (they have allow_restart=1 set by
default) And is this desired or expected behavior for sata disk on sas
controllers?

For the moment the only way for me to have my sata drives sleeping
without i/o errors is to revert your original commit
(85ef06d1d252f6a2e73b678591ab71caad4667bb - tested with kernels 3.1.10,
3.4.4, 3.4.5, 3.4.6 and 3.5.0)

P.S. I hope I'm not getting on everybody's nerves here (especially yours
