If IDE needs a blacklist, SCSI needs one too.

I don't know if anybody can remember but Conner CPF1060 drives
had a funny firmware-bug that caused data corruption if
read-ahead was enabled (was default). The solution was
a) upgrade firmware or b) disabling read-ahead in the mode-pages.

So, where is the SCSI blacklist ?
