Subject[PATCH 2/2] block: rescan partitions on invalidated devices on -ENOMEDIA too
__blkdev_get() doesn't rescan partitions if disk->fops->open() fails,
which leads to ghost partition devices lingering after medimum removal
is known to both the kernel and userland. The behavior also creates a
subtle inconsistency where O_NONBLOCK open, which doesn't fail even if
there's no medium, clears the ghots partitions, which is exploited to
work around the problem from userland.

Fix it by updating __blkdev_get() to issue partition rescan after
-ENOMEDIA too.

This was reported in the following bz.
