storage tests are running against MMC readers still on Oneiric Alpha 3

Bug Description

Running checkbox on Oneiric alpha 3 and I noticed that the storage tests (storage_device_*, disk_smart_* and benchmark_*) are running against the MMC reader on the Latitude 2120.

I thought we'd fixed this... but it needs to be fixed somehow. Running these tests against non-existant devices wastes testers time, and also provides false feedback when the tester gets a message that storage_device_sdb failed (when sdb doesn't actually exist).

First, this problem seems to be specific to the 10ec:5208 PCI device which has an explicit udev rule to set the ID_DISK_FLASH environment variable. The problem with detecting this variable is that it is only defined for the block which is a child of the actual physical device. Since the udev parser reads the output of udevadm as a stream, state must somehow be preserved between devices. In other words, somekind of support needs to be added for the attributes of a device to be gathered across multiple parts of the udevadm output.
