sd_config_write_same() ignores ->max_ws_blocks == 0 and resets it to
permit trying WRITE SAME on older SCSI devices, unless ->no_write_same
is set.  Because REQ_OP_WRITE_ZEROES is implemented in terms of WRITE
SAME, blkdev_issue_zeroout() may fail with -EREMOTEIO:

  $ fallocate -zn -l 1k /dev/sdg
  fallocate: fallocate failed: Remote I/O error
  $ fallocate -zn -l 1k /dev/sdg  # OK
  $ fallocate -zn -l 1k /dev/sdg  # OK

The following calls succeed because sd_done() sets ->no_write_same in
response to a sense that would become BLK_STS_TARGET/-EREMOTEIO, causing
__blkdev_issue_zeroout() to fall back to generating ZERO_PAGE bios.

This means blkdev_issue_zeroout() must cope with WRITE ZEROES failing
and fall back to manually zeroing, unless BLKDEV_ZERO_NOFALLBACK is
specified.  For BLKDEV_ZERO_NOFALLBACK case, return -EOPNOTSUPP if
sd_done() has just set ->no_write_same thus indicating lack of offload
support.
