New FC device causes link failure on 2800

I have a FC tape device connected to a 2800, which is accessed by two hosts. All fabric, no FC-AL or quickloop. Everything works fine until I connect a third device which also must access the tape. At this time, the port the tape uses has a link failure. It continues resetting and having link failures until I remove the new device from the fabric.

Still not sure what the ioctl is, but the problem was apparently in the firmware of the tape device. Upgrading the tape firmware to the latest version fixed the issue.
