The proposed idea is to not reinforce revalidation, unless explictly specified
(in the thread before Bob Liu had suggestions). The goal is to notify user
space of changes via RESIZE. SCSI sd can opt out of this IOW, I can remove
this if you feel SDEV_EVT_CAPACITY_CHANGE_REPORTED is sufficient for current
use cases.
