I was thinking that same problems would be visible also under some
TOS SCSI driver, but fair enough.

(IMHO Linux is a good test-case for how good Hatari's emulation of
specific HW features is.)

Well, you listed SCSI in TT mode there. I think I already said it a
couple of times, but in case you missed it so far: We're still lacking
emulation of the second MFP in TT mode. It does not make sense to test
SCSI with Linux in TT mode without the second MFP.

Ok, I wasn't aware that SCSI is tied to that.

TT + IDE worked fine without it.

(After I changed Hatari to bus error on SCU interrupt mask register,
so that Linux doesn't try to use SCU & VME.  Linux doesn't use
things based on which machine it's running on, it tests existence
of specific HW features.)
