      [SCSI] sr: partial revert of 24669f75 · e12f0a3d

      The patch
      
      [SCSI] SCSI core kmalloc2kzalloc
      
      Has an incorrect piece in sr_ioctl.c; it changes buffer from kmalloc
      to kzalloc, but then removes the clearing of the stack variable struct
      packet_command.  This, in turn leaves rubbish in the sense pointer
      which the sr_do_ioctl() command then happily writes to ... oops.
      
      Thanks to Mike Christie <michaelc@cs.wisc.edu> for spotting this.

      Ok, so here is my first take at satisfying this request.
      Be warned, that beyond compiling, and checking that the new module
      doesn't immediately blow up, there hasn't yet been a lot of testing.
      
      But this should allow you to comment on the changes, and move forward
      with dropping scsi_request from the kernel code.
