FWIW: this is up to the kernel devs, and not us. 'bsg' is
supported/loaded because the kernel says so. The only thing that
changed recently was that a hack was removed from udev to foricbly
load the 'sg' module. The reason this hack was needed is that (as far
as i understand) the 'sg' module does not have support for the being
automatically loaded as almost all other modules (including 'bsg')

A way around this is to add back the hack but make it specific to the
packages that need it (such as cdrecord), rather than having it on all
systems. This is essentially what the modules-load.d fragment I
proposed does.
