Hmm, not quite. If its info->sense_data, then 18 is not correct. Rather,
sizeof(struct request_sense) would be more likely the proper length. So,
actually, it would be more like:

unsigned sense_len = 18;

if (sense == NULL) {
	sense = &info->sense_data;
	sense_len = sizeof(struct request_sense);
}

memset(sense, 0, sense_len);

Otherwise, I like it.
