Subject[PATCH] scsi: sd: Fix cache_type_store()
Date
Changing of caching mode via /sys/devices/.../scsi_disk/.../cache_type
may fail if device responses to MODE SENSE command with DPOFUA flag set,
and then checks this flag to be not set on MODE SELECT command.

When trying to change cache_type, write always fails:
# echo "none" >cache_type
bash: echo: write error: Invalid argument

And following appears in dmesg:
[13007.865745] sd 1:0:1:0: [sda] Sense Key : Illegal Request [current]
[13007.865753] sd 1:0:1:0: [sda] Add. Sense: Invalid field in parameter list
