    Subject[patch 064/176] [SCSI] libsas: fix runaway error handler problem
    2.6.36-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


    From: James Bottomley <>

    commit 9ee91f7fb550a4c82f82d9818e42493484c754af upstream.

    libsas makes use of scsi_schedule_eh() but forgets to clear the
    host_eh_scheduled flag in its error handling routine. Because of this,
    the error handler thread never gets to sleep; it's constantly awake and
    trying to run the error routine leading to console spew and inability to
    run anything else (at least on a UP system). The fix is to clear the
    flag as we splice the work queue.
