I did an upgrade of the firmware of the SSD. It was very easy, download
the ZIP containing an ISO image with a Linux live system. Then configure
the network and run the update process. After that upgrade the SSD now
uses the firmware version 1.37, but unfortunately the errors still occur.
So I guess there is another problem, either with the SSD or the error
reporting. When I started using the SSD I did not see these errors. I
think I will use an older DragonFly BSD live image to see if that system
now reports the same errors.
I'll let you know.
