LSI 53C895A could be well the cause of your problem.
IIRC it is not that much tested / used by Qemu Upstream.
( on Pve 4.2 we switched the SCSI controller to Virtio SCSI for new
Linux VMs)

Virtio Blk was the controller we recommended for Linux guests running on
PVE 3.4. If you're using UUID in your /etc/fstab, you can switch to
Virtio Blk without problem.
