Subject[PATCH 0/2] scsi:donot skip lun if inquiry returns PQ=1 for all hosts
commit 948e922fc4461 ("scsi: core: map PQ=1, PDT=other values to
returns PQ=1.

According to the SPC, PQ=1 means the addressed logical unit having the
indicated device type is not accessible, it does not mean the addressed
logical unit is invalid. We still can map this lun to an sg device.

In some conditions, we do not want to skip these devices, for example
with iSCSI:

When iSCSI initiator logged in target, the target attached none valid
lun but lun0. lun0 is not an valid disk, while it would response
inquiry command with PQ=1 and other general scsi commands like probe lun.
The others luns of target is added/removed dynamicly.

We want the lun0 to be mapped to an sg device in initiator, so we can
probe luns of target based on lun0.

In first patch, I add an interface to control if to skip luns return
PQ=1 for inquiry.

In second patch, make iscsi_tcp do not skip luns return PQ=1 as default,
since I do not have iscsi_tcp environment, so here just modified the
