I don't really think this is the correct approach. We already have a
SCSI error return for this, which you're now translating in the driver
and hypervisor. Rather than have a special byte return of
SRB_STATUS_INVALID_REQUEST, why not have the hypervisor do the right
thing and fill in the ILLEGAL_REQUEST sense return. That way you don't
need a special error code and you don't need to construct the sense
buffer in the driver. Now HyperV will be correctly set up for both pass
through and emulated responses. It's surely not much work and you
already process sense data correctly in storvsc_command_completion(), so
you wouldn't need any patches to the driver for this approach.
