generic_unplug_device() was an addition into the sg driver
by Jens Axboe. Under heavy stress testing I have also received
an oops from this function.

It is there because the tentacles of the Linux block subsystem
have found their way into the the SCSI midlevel. The st and sg
drivers are proof of why this is bad design as they are char

If the generic_unplug_device() call is removed then the
sg driver will periodically have its commands suspended
on the SCSI mid level queue until the block subsystem
decides to send something to the device in question.
This can be seconds (which isn't a pleasant thing to do
to a cdwriter).
