Subject[PATCH V8 8/8] SCSI: set block queue at preempt only when SCSI device is put into quiesce
Date
Simply quiesing SCSI device and waiting for completeion of IO
dispatched to SCSI queue isn't safe, it is easy to use up
request pool because all allocated requests before can't
be dispatched when device is put in QIUESCE. Then no request
can be allocated for RQF_PREEMPT, and system may hang somewhere,
such as When sending commands of sync_cache or start_stop during
system suspend path.

Before quiesing SCSI, this patch sets block queue in preempt
mode first, so no new normal request can enter queue any more,
and all pending requests are drained too once blk_set_preempt_only(true)
is returned. Then RQF_PREEMPT can be allocated successfully duirng
SCSI quiescing.

This patch fixes one long term issue of IO hang, in either block legacy
and blk-mq.
