And indeed, in the SBP-2 realm the ORB's address is actually the tag of
the SCSI task.

If I ever get to fix sbp2's handling of dynamically appended ORB lists,
the next step would be to measure which queue depth is optimal for
different hardware and different workloads. (Certainly much less than
thousands for typical SBP-2 target(s)+initiator(s) setups.)
