SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/3] SCSI core and sd: early detection of medium not present

This would appear to be duplicating the struct scsi_disk media_present
flag. Moving the media_present flag from scsi_disk to scsi_device may
make a bit of sense long term ... however, there's also dupication with
the sr driver and the cdrom layer now (that stores media change at the
cdrom level), so is there an argument why it's better in scsi_device
than scsi_disk?
