So, I briefly looked at the problem and can suggest some areas to
investigate. I have not reproduced the problem (haven't had time to try)
so I'd really want to see some debug statements if I were investigating.

Open-FC just gets the data direction from the
scsi_cmnd->sc_data_direction enumeration. Your opcode was 0x12- the
INQUIRY command, which I'm pretty sure is a DMA_FROM_DEVICE
(scsi_probe_lun()). I'd look into the fc_scsi_rcv function which would
be handling the incoming command on the target, or the
openfc_queuecommand function to see what the SCSI-ml is passing down on
the initiator side. 

Basically, I'd want to know what the initiator is getting from SCSI,
what it's sending out and what Open-FC on the target side thinks the
direction is when it's receiving it. It sounds like somewhere along the
way that value is getting changed.
