Since UNIT ATTENTION is usually reporting a condition unrelated to
the command that was sent (I'm not sure 29 00 qualifies as unrelated
since it indicates loss of device state), we probably shouldn't
require every caller to retry on it. Could we handle this internally,
(maybe unless it persists for N attempts), before returning?
We should still be going through the scsi_check_sense() path and
the device handlers need to see the sense.
