This isn't THAT difficult.  Build a kernel with nothing but sg on the
relevant ID/LUN and then use something like cdparanoia as an example of
how to issue your own SCSI commands.

Well, I should say, it shouldn't be that difficult.  I haven't tried it
myself...though, come to think of it, I have a floppy drive that shows
up as a SCSI device with 256-byte sectors which might make a decent
test case.

If I can find the silly thing.
