Subject[PATCH 4.12 18/27] dm mpath: do not lock up a CPU with requeuing activity
Date
4.12-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Bart Van Assche <bart.vanassche@wdc.com>

commit 1c23484c355ec360ca2f37914f8a4802c6baeead upstream.

When using the block layer in single queue mode, get_request()
returns ERR_PTR(-EAGAIN) if the queue is dying and the REQ_NOWAIT
flag has been passed to get_request(). Avoid that the kernel
reports soft lockup complaints in this case due to continuous
requeuing activity.

Fixes: 7083abbbf ("dm mpath: avoid that path removal can trigger an infinite loop")
