Perry pointed out to me that it would really be a good idea to mention
what these PR's were about.  Heh; what a concept!

Thanks to Curt for committing the patch in 6852.  These other two are
still open:

6903 is about SCSI medium changers that don't support the MODE SENSE
command.  This is actually perfectly legal, according to the spec, but
it makes it difficult to figure out what the geometry of the changer
is.  My solution was to hardcode it into the quirks table.

6214 is about block mode descriptors for medium changers.  Currently,
block descriptors are disabled, but I don't really know what that
means, other than that it breaks some hardware I have.  :)
