The related bug in the linux kernel that introduced this kind of usage 
came up in early 2004 on a 2.4 kernel. The older 2.4 kernels are OK and honor
the privilege rules. The newer ones allowed to send any SCSI command even 
on a read-only file descriptor. As a hint: the bug was introduced by adding the
SG_IO ioctl() into the sg driver.
