From: Nicholas Bellinger <nab@linux-iscsi.org>

This patch adds a special BlockDriverState->sg check in block.c:find_image_format()
after bdrv_file_open() -> block/raw-posix.c:hdev_open() has been called to determine
if we are dealing with a Linux host scsi-generic device.

The patch then returns the BlockDriver * from bdrv_find_format("raw"), skipping the
subsequent bdrv_read() and rest of find_image_format().
