[PATCH 7/7] drivers: scsi: storvsc: Correctly handle TEST_UNIT_READY failure

From: K. Y. Srinivasan
Date: Sat Jul 12 2014 - 11:53:32 EST

On some Windows hosts on FC SANs, TEST_UNIT_READY can return SRB_STATUS_ERROR.
Correctly handle this. Note that there is sufficient sense information to
support scsi error handling even in this case.

In this version of the patch I have addressed comments from
Christoph Hellwig <hch@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>
