This is a sponsor request for bug 6434926:

In a lot of cases, USB and Firewire mass storage devices do not support the
caching parameter mode sense page.  sd should try to verify that it is looking 
at
valid caching page mode sense data, before accessing the "write cache enabled"
flag.

See bug report CR 6434926, it also includes my suggested fix.
