Attached is a patch that attempts to address removable storage devices
(that are not CD-ROMs) attached either via SCSI or via USB. The purpose
is to do "gentler" probing of media presence than that done by OS in
response to open(2).
I employed one hack in the code to avoid device being open()-ed if
cam_open_device() fails, but this was "just in case", not sure if it was
really needed.

The patch works very well for me, especially in tandem with the patch
for SCSI verboseness that I posted to -stable and -scsi.
