I'm not sure I buy this: you need to justify why.

For instance removable media return an error in revalidate that causes
the medium not present flag to be set ... do we really want to propagate
the error in that case?

You're assuming here that a negative error code is being returned, but
some (cciss) seem to be returning 1 on error.

You'll need to assure us that you've checked all the consumers before
making this change.
