Yes, I realize failing only on specific sense codes as I did it in the
patch is not going to work. However, the other way round is not
problematic (explicitly allow some sense codes, fail on all others).

Another example is "target operating conditions have changed". QEMU
cannot report such changes because scsi_error prints a warning (fine)
and then passes the unit attention upwards. With removable drives, this
has the same problem as resizing.
