	Quantum LPS540S doesn't implement cache flushes.
	Simply shutting down the system will expose the error short
	before the expected "System is halted" message.

	A quirk in scsi_da.c is in order.  Adding something like this
	will do:

	{	{T_DIRECT, SIP_MEDIA_FIXED, quantum, "LPS540S", "*"},

	BTW, I suspect all the LPS line from Quantum suffers of the
	same problem.  If this is confirmed, simply changing the
	already existing quirk for the LPS525S (lines 201-207) will do:

		 * Doesn't like the synchronize cache command.
		{T_DIRECT, SIP_MEDIA_FIXED, quantum, "LPS*", "*"},
		/*quirks*/ DA_Q_NO_SYNC_CACHE

	Note the more general matcher for the product name.
