With the updated "Make LBP quirk skip lbpme checks" the above patches
enable discard on all Hyper-V disks (both VHDXs and passthrough SSDs) on
Windows 2012 R2 running a Linux 3.16.0-rc6.x86_64-00076-g2f7d2ec-dirty
guest.

Adding back the debugging and looking at just the discard messages shows
this:

sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Discard mode: 2
sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Entering discard switch via LBP VPD
sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Discard mode: 1
sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Discard mode: 2

sd 1:0:0:0: [sdb] Discard mode: 1
sd 1:0:0:3: [sdd] Discard mode: 2
sd 1:0:0:0: [sdb] Discard mode: 2
sd 1:0:0:0: [sdb] Entering discard switch via LBP VPD

sd 1:0:0:3: [sdd] Entering discard switch via LBP VPD
sd 1:0:0:3: [sdd] Discard mode: 1

All devices eventually end up using discard mode 1 (SD_LBP_UNMAP) but
it's a bit strange the VHDX devices (which set lbpme) flip back and
forth between discard mode 1 and discard mode 2 (SD_LBP_WS16)...
