Hi Bart,

Thanks for your Review!

Yeah, once the patch in this thread is in, IO hang shouldn't happen any more
even without 826a70a08b12.

But that commit is still the correct thing to do, since we let blk-mq's sbitmap
queue respect per-host queue depth, which way is much efficient than the
simple atomic operations used in scsi_host_queue_ready(). So I think that commit
is still useful.

When I was figuring out patch of 826a70a08b12, I just ignore the .get_budget() for
requests from hctx->dispatch_list, because we don't need to deal with queue idle
when .get_budget() is called from both blk_mq_do_dispatch_sched() and blk_mq_do_dispatch_ctx().
Thanks,
Ming
