scsi/sr: add no_read_disc_info scsi_device flag
Some USB devices emulate a usb-mass-storage attached (scsi) cdrom device, usually this fake cdrom contains the windows software for the device. While working on supporting Appotech ax3003 based photoframes, which do this I discovered that they will go of into lala land when ever they see a READ_DISC_INFO scsi command. Thus this patch adds a scsi_device flag (which can then be set by the usb-storage driver through an unsual-devs entry), to indicate this, and makes the sr driver honor this flag. I know this sucks, but as discussed on linux-scsi list there is no other way to make this device work properly. Looking at usb traces made under windows, windows never sends a READ_DISC_INFO during normal interactions with a usb cdrom device. So as this cdrom emulation thingie becomes more common we might see more of this problem.
