What happens is that the 2nd disk resets the bus while fw-sbp2 executes
__scsi_add_device in sbp2_login.  sbp2_reconnect would be necessary
immediately, but it can't run in parallel with sbp2_login... yet.

Kristian already had a solution for the case that __scsi_add_device
fails due to a bus reset or something else.  Just recently I added a
failover for the case that __scsi_add_device returns with alleged
success but leaves the scsi_device in offline state.  In your case,
__scsi_add_device returns with "succeeds" as well but the results of the
sd driver's probing aren't quite useful, even though the device was not
put offline in the process.

As a minimally invasive fix for setups like yours, we have to make
__scsi_add_device fail if the bus generation changed.  I will try
something later today.
