True, though I'm finding other robustness issues in the CDROM code.
They're probably all insane corner cases, but it seems like it'd be
nice to just fix them:

This code wasn't checking req->sense_len, for example. It'll just get
stale data at worst case, but it's still ugly, especially since we
have a solution to do it right.

It looks like there is more in block/scsi_ioctl.c than just ioctl
handling, which is why I put the function in there originally.
Honestly, it's almost so small I could make it a static inline. :P

No worries; thanks for looking at it!
