This patch is just wrong on so many different levels its hard to know
where to begin.

1. The auth for arbitary commands is CAP_SYS_RAWIO
2. "The SCSI command permissions were discussed widely on the linux
lists but this did not result in any useful refinement of the
permissions." - this is false. The process was refined, a table setup
was added and debugged. Someone even wrote an fs for managing it that is
not yet merged. Perhaps the patch author would care to re-read the
archives and submit a new patch if one is even needed
3. Pleas explain *what* the specific consistency problems are

And then please fix the same mess in 12rc.
