sd: Clear PS bit before Mode Select.
According to SPC-4, in a Mode Select, the PS bit in Mode Pages is reserved and must be set to 0 by the driver. In the sd implementation, function cache_type_store does a Mode Sense, which might set the PS bit on the read buffer, followed by a Mode Select, which receives the same buffer, without explicitly clearing the PS bit. So, in cases where target supports saving the Mode Page to a non-volatile location, we end up doing a Mode Select with the PS bit set, which could cause an illegal request error if the target is checking this. This was observed on a new firmware change, which was subsequently reverted, but this changes sd.c to be more compliant with SPC-4. This patch clears the PS bit in the buffer returned by Mode Select, right before it is used in the Mode Select command.
