It opens sd twice (AFAIK) - I think mount scans the block devices (an open
of sd) and then mounts (internal open). The code path in question is
probably via sd.c functions sd_media_changed and sd_revalidate_disk, and
the block_dev.c check_disk_change. sd_open calls check_disk_change.

This could be the same problem others are seeing with removable media
accessed via USB mass storage.

Can you dd to and from the media OK?

Can you capture output for the mount with scsi logging on?

It may or may not help track down what is happening.

If you haven't done much scsi, some scsi logging info:

Check that your .config has CONFIG_SCSI_LOGGING on.

Then do something like:

sync
sync
echo scsi log all > /proc/scsi/scsi
mount /dev/sdw1 /mnt/sdw1
echo scsi log none > /proc/scsi/scsi
umount /mnt/sdw1
Turn off syslogd if you are logging to a scsi disk (and then you need a
serial line to capture output, and all printk's have to go to the
console), and sync if you are booted off scsi before turning on logging.
In either case, you could get a flood of messages.
