Subject: [PATCH] cdrom: always select BLK_SCSI_REQUEST

When CDROM is enabled, but nothing else selects BLK_SCSI_REQUEST,
we get this link error:

cdrom.c:(.text+0x7a18): undefined reference to `scsi_cmd_blk_ioctl'

The problem is that the CDROM helper code has become user-selectable
now when it used to only be compiled if anything else enabled it.
This moves the 'select BLK_SCSI_REQUEST' from the drivers that
explicitly have it into CONFIG_CDROM, to make sure we always
build that code.
