[SCSI] st: add option to use SILI in variable block reads

Add new option MT_ST_SILI to enable setting the SILI bit in reads in variable
block mode. If SILI is set, reading a block shorter than the byte count does
not result in CHECK CONDITION. The length of the block is determined using the
residual count from the HBA. Avoiding the REQUEST SENSE command for every
block speeds up some real applications considerably.

MT_ST_SYSV sets the SYSV semantics (mode)
MT_ST_NOWAIT enables immediate mode (i.e., don't wait for
the command to finish) for some commands (e.g., rewind)
MT_ST_SILI enables setting the SILI bit in SCSI commands when
reading in variable block mode to enhance performance when
reading blocks shorter than the byte count; set this only
if you are sure that the drive supports SILI and the HBA
correctly returns transfer residuals
