You can apply this for scsi-pending now.

scsi_dh will not be merge for 2.6.26, the original patch needs to be
merged. If scsi_dh will, then we can drop the original patch since we
can live without the changes to scsi_ioctl.c, pktcdvd.c, and cdrom.c
(sizeof(rq->cmd) doesn't make sense but it doesn't hurt us).

Subject: [PATCH] scsi_dh: no need to initialize rq->cmd with blk_get_request

blk_get_request initializes rq->cmd (rq_init does) so the users don't
need to do that.

The purpose of this patch is to remove &rq->cmd, as a preparation for
large command support, which changes rq->cmd from the static array to
a pointer. &rq->cmd won't work.
