Description

I have a 3 TB Seagate Expansion portable USB 3.0 hard disk:
https://usb-ids.gowdy.us/read/UD/0bc2/231a

, model should be STEA3000400 (as found in an XML file which came inside the hard disk when I bought it)
with the suffix SRD0NF1 I guess (from the sticker in the back of the hard disk)

With UAS enabled I can see info with -d scsi (-d sat{,12} doesn't work), but SMART info is not available:

# smartctl -d scsi -i /dev/sdb

I wonder if it's possible to get SMART access without blacklisting UAS. I don't like the "very big device" messages I receive in dmesg and I guess the device will perform better with UAS enabled (Kernel 4.14.15-1 from Archlinux X86_64).
