Please find attached a patch to tgtadm to allow to create a new LUN
without a backingstore
if the device type is MMC.

This means that the LUN will be created, but no media is loaded, like
a CD/DVD which does not yet have a disk inserted.
This is useful both for scripts where you want to add media at a later
stage, but also for Jukeboxes where you probably want the initial
state of the system to be a reader without media mounted but lots of
media mounted in the storage slots, to later be moved to the reader
using the mtx command.

Maybe this should also allow creation of a LUN without media for SSC too?
