USB Storage: indistinguishable devices with broken and unbroken firmware

there's a USB mass storage device which exists in two version. One
reports the correct size and the other does not. Apart from that they
are identical and cannot be told apart. Here's a heuristic based on the
empirical finding that drives have even sizes.
