This description is misleading: you don't force the test now, you force
the driver to send unmap commands down to the device.

Really no way to this one.  You're forcing unmap support on every
hyper-v device; including spinning rust pass through ones which won't
support it.  The hyper-v storage interface has proven to be somewhat
fragile, so it may explode when the device tries to send illegal command
sense back.

If you have a specific IDENTITY string for a faulty SSD that fails to
report unmap support correctly, then we could quirk for that, but not
everything attached to the hyper-v driver.
