Looking at the define of NCR_5380_write

#define NCR5380_write(reg, value) isa_writeb(NCR5380_map_name + +NCR53C400_mem_base + (reg), value)

followed by an use of NCR5380_write


I doubt that it is not the intention to write CSR_BASE | CSR_TRANS_DIR
at the offset C400_CONTROL_STATUS_REG. But note that this argument
swap only is in the code produced by -DCONFIG_SCSI_G_NCR5380_MEM.
Perhaps you use CONFIG_SCSI_G_NCR5380_PORT? Otherwise I must admit
that I have been had...
