We need a fix for RHEL 7.4 and 7.3.z, but unfortunately upstream isn't
ready. If it were, the changes will be too invasive. To have an idea:

is an incomplete attempt to fix part of the issue, and the remaining
work unfortunately involve even more complex changes.

As a band-aid, this partially reverts the effect of ef8875b
(virtio-scsi: Remove op blocker for dataplane, since v2.7). We cannot
simply revert that commit as a whole because we already shipped it in
qemu-kvm-rhev 7.3, since when, block jobs has been possible.  We should
only block what has been broken.  Also, faithfully reverting the above
commit means adding back the removed op blocker, but that is not enough,
because it still crashes when inserting media into an initially empty

All in all, scsi-cd on virtio-scsi-dataplane has basically been unusable
unless the scsi-cd never enters an empty state, so, disable it
altogether.  Otherwise it would be much more difficult to avoid
