Subject[PATCH 06/13] user can ask driver to forget previously detected devices
Date
When an AoE device is detected, the kernel is informed, and a new
block device is created. If the device is unused, the block device
corresponding to remote device that is no longer available may be
removed from the system by telling the aoe driver to "flush" its list
of devices.

Without this patch, software like GPFS and LVM may attempt to read
from AoE devices that were discovered earlier but are no longer
present, blocking until the I/O attempt times out.
