[PATCH 2/3] scsi: add try_rc16 blacklist flag

Microsoft Hyper-V virtual disks currently only claim SPC-2 compliance causing
the kernel skip checks for features such as thin provisioning even though the
virtual disk advertises them.

Add a blacklist flag that can allow such devices to quirk past READ
CAPACITY(16) guards.
