Subject: [PATCH] scsi: ufs: ufshcd: Enable no_write_same for scsi host

Occasionally the following error message can be seen in the logs of
Qualcomm devices using UFS:

EXT4-fs (sda9): Delayed block allocation failed for inode 685600 at logical offset 1086 with max blocks 3 with error 121
EXT4-fs (sda9): This should not happen!! Data will be lost

This is caused by a failing WRITE_SAME command, which per the JEDEC UFS
specification is not a supported. Set the no_write_same flag on the
ufshcd SCSI host to let the SCSI layer know this.

Fixes: 7a3e97b0dc4b ("[SCSI] ufshcd: UFS Host controller driver")
