Commit 18351070 authored by Linus Torvalds's avatar Linus Torvalds

Re-introduce "[SCSI] extend the last_sector_bug flag to cover more sectors"

This re-introduces commit 2b142900,
which was reverted due to the regression it caused by commit
fca082c9.

That regression was not root-caused by the original commit, it was just
uncovered by it, and the real fix was done by Alan Stern in commit
580da348 ("Fix USB storage hang on
command abort").

We can thus re-introduce the change that was confirmed by Alan Jenkins
to be still required by his odd card reader.
