SCSI errors on Intel S5000PSLROMB with SATA disks

I have several SCSI related messages in /var/log/vmkernel.

Is my assumption correct that these error messages are VMkernel messages that are not specific to the SCSI commands issued on behalf of one VM guest?

Where do I find a documentation about the SCSI error codes and the format of the VMKernel error messages?

The configuration is an Intel S5000PSLROMB motherboard with the hardware RAID controller SROMBSAS18E and SATA disks, Samsung HD501LJ (SpinPoint T) , attached. I know that only my motherboard and the RAID controller is supported but it is not supported to host a VMFS on SATA disks.

I tried to update the motherboard BIOS to version 79, but I had to go back to Version 74 because otherwise the megaraid_sas driver did not load during the server boot.

Do you know if these error messages would very likely also appear with other SATA disks that are sold as “RAID edition” like Seagate ST3500630NS (Barracuda ES, RAID-Edition).
