Why is this not:   "job->reply->reply_payload_rcv_len = len;"  ?

I have found that in case the user-space code specified a bigger response buffer size than len. i.e. when job->reply_payload.payload_len > len, it will consider the reply data is not fulfilled, and it hangs. The way I do is to allow receiving less data than expected.
If this is true, it's a bug. Given the other statements in your reply, you may need to test with the latest patch. See:
There was one patch on top of it (http://marc.info/?l=linux-scsi&m=123980043221985&w=2)
