Help decoding mt_gstat message from Ultrium 4 tape drive

Our backup software is logging errors from a drive:

errno=5 mt_gstat=0x01114600 mt_dsreg1=0x06280000 mt_dsreg2=0x00940909 after 68355600 blocks.

The 1st filed is a error number, the next are the general status register and othere status registers. How do I decode what this error message means?
