None of the above...

I did a bisection, it spotted git-scsi-misc.patch. 
I just run 2.6.24-rc3-mm1 + revert-git-scsi-misc.patch, and it works fine.

I guess commit 8655a546c83fc43f0a73416bbd126d02de7ad6c0 "[SCSI] Do not 
requeue requests if REQ_FAILFAST is set" is the real culprit. The other 
commits are touching documentation or drivers I don't use. I'll try 
to revert only this one this evening.
