sr: pass down correctly sized SCSI sense buffer

commit f7068114d45ec55996b9040e98111afa56e010fe upstream.

We're casting the CDROM layer request_sense to the SCSI sense
buffer, but the former is 64 bytes and the latter is 96 bytes.
As we generally allocate these on the stack, we end up blowing
up the stack.

Fix this by wrapping the scsi_execute() call with a properly
sized sense buffer, and copying back the bits for the CDROM

Fixes: 82ed4db4 ("block: split scsi_request out of struct request")

[bwh: Despite what the "Fixes" field says, a buffer overrun was already
 possible if the sense data was really > 64 bytes long.
 Backported to 4.9:
 - We always need to allocate a sense buffer in order to call
 - Remove the existing conditional heap-allocation of the sense buffer]
