There are two orthogonal problems. One being that the driver advertised
conformance to an old SCSI spec. That's being addressed with the
separate SPC-3 patch.

The other issue is that thin provisioning is being incorrectly
advertised. Because that's being addressed by Microsoft and is an
isolated use case I'm hesitant to add quirk for it. Whereas I know
several other devices that will benefit from the TRY_VPD_PAGES blacklist
