Do not pretend to have a media, when we receive a profile like 0x02,
which just means "Removable disk".

cdrom_id: Swap media state and TOC info probing

Blank CDs do not have a TOC, thus will fail cd_media_toc() (at least with the
"Do not ignore errors from scsi_cmd_run()" fix). Thus probe the media state
first, so that we can properly detect blank media.

cdrom_id: Do not ignore errors from scsi_cmd_run()

scsi_cmd_run() can return positive error messages if we have CHECK_CONDITION
set and get the error code from the SCSI command result. So check the result
for non-zero, not for being negative.

This should fix another cause for "phantom" media in empty CD-ROM drives.

cdrom_id: Fix uninitialized buffers

Commit 5c6954f is actually a no-op, since static variables are already zero'ed
by default anyway (but we keep it for clarity). The real difference was that a
build with -O0 wor while a build with -O2 didn't.

Turns out that some ioctls do not actually touch the result buffer in some
cases, so we need to zero the result buffers to avoid interpreting random da as
CD properties.

In cases where cdrom_id does not go through the entire code path and one of the
probing functions returns -1 or exits early, the remaining variables were never
initialized. This caused effects like "phantom" audio CDs on empty drives, or
