scsi: core: Avoid that SCSI device removal through sysfs triggers a deadlock

A long time ago the unfortunate decision was taken to add a self-deletion
attribute to the sysfs SCSI device directory. That decision was unfortunate
because self-deletion is really tricky. We can't drop that attribute
because widely used user space software depends on it, namely the
rescan-scsi-bus.sh script. Hence this patch that avoids that writing into
that attribute triggers a deadlock. See also commit 7973cbd9fbd9 ("[PATCH]
add sysfs attributes to scan and delete scsi_devices").

This patch avoids that self-removal triggers the following deadlock:
