    Agreed... DEF_SCSI_QCMD was intended, as you note, to encourage a
    piecemeal, in-depth approach to cleaning up the rest of the drivers.
    Hopefully DEF_SCSI_QCMD removal means someone actually figured out [or
    already knew] the locking for a driver, and created the most appropriate
    patch, rather than another half-step.
