[SCSI] sd: add fix for devices with last sector access problems

This patch adds a new scsi_device flag (last_sector_bug) for devices
which contain a bug where the device crashes when the last sector is
read in a larger then 1 sector read.

This is for example the case with sdcards in the HP PSC1350 printer
cardreader and in the HP PSC1610 printer cardreader.
