A small point to add here, I have found that the PID SELF_TEST_DESCRIPTION may not be implimented.

This is an area of the standard that could definately benefit from a revision.

Something like Get PERFORM_SELFTEST, PDL = 1, PD = $FF would return the count of available self tests.
Using PD in the range of 1 .. Count(tests) would return the status of the individual tests.

Mean while, if anybody can suggest a way out of my little dilemma (with out stopping or starting sef-tests) please comment.
