  SCSI reconnect
      The ability of a SCSI initiator to initiate new
     transactions before earlier ones have completed.  A target or
     initiator can disconnect from the bus when it experiences a
     delay in completing a task so that another device can use the
     bus.  It can reconnect later and complete the task.
