SubjectRe: [ 38/48] SCSI & usb-storage: add try_rc_10_first flag
Hi,

This patch is a better fix for the issue first fixed by:
"usb-storage: Add 090c:1000 to unusal-devs", so the same applies to
this patch, let me quote my reply to the stable-review for that patch:

"I'm not sure if this is needed with 3.2, it is needed with 3.4 because
recently the usb-storage driver was changed to report the supported
scsi level as reported by the device, rather then always report a
scsi level of 2. This change causes sd.c to try READ_CAPACITY(16)
first, which foobars up not only this one device, but as it turns
out a lot of others too, so we're working on another fix
(and I believe that 3.2 is unaffected)."

So since 3.2 already tries READ_CAPACITY(10) first, this patch is
not needed. It does not harm either, and if the scsi level reporting
change ever finds its way into 3.2 stable (which it should not
IMHO), then this patch will be needed.

Regards,

Hans
