I have an MTI QTS-30 (aka CMD CQD-200/Ts) and TTi QTS-1 / QTS-3 SCSI
tape controllers which I can use to boot a 2.11BSD install tape, but
the install process hangs up while trying to restore the files from
the tape to the hard drive.  Anyone know for certain if the latest
patches might help that with these TMSCP controllers?

With the same SCSI tape drive and a CQD-220/TM I can complete the
2.11BSD tape install process to a hard drive attached to the
CQD-220/TM, but then it won't cold boot from the hard drive attached
to the CQD-220/TM.  One of the MSCP boot loader patches is supposed to
fix that, but I haven't built and verified myself yet.  It's on the to
do list.
