That would be great! The fix looks good -- what you want to add in
addition is checking that this is a rw request. So before your switch,
do something ala

         * we don't support special requests
        if (!(CURRENT->flags & REQ_CMD)) {
                end_that_request_first(CURRENT, 0, CURRENT->nr_sectors);
