    OK, I finally have a theory about this. It's the everything goes via
    bios code. Previously there were several levels at which commands could
    exit the SCSI stack; now we make everything go via bios, so they all
    come out at the top.

    get_capabilities() in sr.c is sending a TEST_UNIT_READY which will get
    NOT_READY back. Previously this was completing before it got to
    scsi_io_completion(); now it doesn't. There must be quite a few cases
    like this. The best fix is probably to use and respect REQ_QUIET for
    internally generated commands.
