Due to no users complain about it so far, It seems not many people need it.
I'll spend some time reading some code of qemu block and diving into SCSI command manual, then try to implement it.If anyone's willing to implement it before this, it will be appreciated.
Thanks for your valuable information,

It does make sense to implement GET LBA STATUS because QEMU emulates the
Be careful though because there is no asynchronous bdrv_block_status()
API yet. Internally the BlockDriver->bdrv_co_block_status() function is
already asynchronous because it runs in a coroutine. It will be
necessary to expose a new bdrv_aio_get_block_status() or similar API so
the device models (i.e. SCSI emulation code) can take advantage of that.
