I have to re-submit Disco MR and a new PPA package, as the compiler in Disco is likely more recent and treating lots of "new warnings" as errors (-Wimplicit-fallthrough, etc...). I'll do it tomorrow!

The patch looks correctly ported form upstream (the needed snippet applies as-is), I'll leave the effect it has on the system to Ryan's review who is deeper into the tech side of this case already.

Minor fixups needed, therefore "Need Fixing"

Minor comments on the FTBFS fixes as well

Other than the stated patches LGTM, as I said functionally we might wait for Ryan to comment.
You might cleanup the style issue until then to be ready to upload.

Fixed, re-pushing.

LGTM now, thanks for the fixups.

One nit pick inline, just to bother you :-)

Christian, would you mind uploading this for me ? sg3-utils needs core-dev!

Thanks a lot!

PS: next one is the Bionic SRU (that will fix that original MAAS case).

Marking as approved and sponsoring as requested.

Umm - only now I see a bad version number.
I either missed it on the initial review or it wasn't there back then.

Anyway - let me explain and fix it up on upload:

First of all "double ~" seems wrong and ~ means "before what is in front"
This is disco, so 19.04, which means before the 19.04 - that seems odd.

Current versions:
 sg3-utils | 1.42-2ubuntu1 | bionic | source, amd64, arm64, armhf, i386, ppc64el, s390x
 sg3-utils | 1.42-2ubuntu1 | disco | source, amd64, arm64, armhf, i386, ppc64el, s390x
 sg3-utils | 1.44-1ubuntu1 | eoan | source, amd64, arm64, armhf, i386, ppc64el, s390x
 sg3-utils | 1.44-1ubuntu1 | focal | source, amd64, arm64, armhf, i386, ppc64el, s390x

E+F are fixe. So we need new versions vor B+D and since they are the same now we need the release in the version - so far so good.

But that would usually be:
B: 1.42-2ubuntu1.18.04.1
D: 1.42-2ubuntu1.19.04.1

39+Because I'm only interested in the fix for USB SPC-only devices ID_SERIAL.
41+This upstream commit changes the udev rules logic for USB block devices
42+that only supports SCSI PRIMARY COMMANDS, not supporting SCSI INQ 0x80
43+nor 0x83.
45+Despite a possible delay, still existing in this version, whenever a
46+SPC-only block device (pendrive ?) is attached, this version fixes the
47+main issue for LP: 1833618, wrong ID_SERIAL for those devices.
49+Udev rules from sg3-utils will, still, execute SCSI INQ 0X80 trying to use VPDs
50+from the kernel, and those will fail fast. Unfortunately, the subsequent SCSI
51+INQ 0x83 command, also trying to use VPDs from kernel, will take much longer
52+time (sometimes up to 1 minute) to fail when it sees there is no existing
53+vpd_pg83 file in sysfs and send an INQ to the USB block device, adding a delay
54+in the device attachment. This is not being addressed in this fix as this is
55+still present in upstream version.
57+This last issue has to be addressed in a future sg3-utils-merge and
58+that is why is being documented here (when this patch will likely be
