Subject[PATCH v4 2/5] scsi: ufs: Use DBD setting in mode sense
UFS standards requires DBD field to be set to 1 in mode sense(10).

Some card vendors are more strict and check the DBD field, hence
respond with CHECK_CONDITION (Sense key set to ILLEGAL_REQUEST and
When host send mode sense for page caching, as a result of the
CHECK_CONDITION response, host assumes that the device doesn't support
the cache feature and doesn't send SYNCHRONIZE_CACHE commands to flush
the device cache. This can result in data corruption in case of sudden
power down, when there is data stored in the device cache.

This patch fixes the DBD field setting as required in UFS standards.
