I didn't paste any Write Protect sticker on my SM card, but I still
see this, (and twice in a row in the logs too):

usb-storage: device scan complete
SCSI device sda: 32001 512-byte hdwr sectors (16 MB)
sda: Write Protect is on
sda: Mode Sense: 00 00 80 80
sda: assuming drive cache: write through

I suppose there is nothing I can do about it (e.g., with a hex editor)
except go to town and buy another card reader and hope it doesn't also
say Write Protect on? Or do all SM cards get that way after sitting
around a few years?
