Subject[PATCH V8 0/8] block/scsi: safe SCSI quiescing
Hi Jens,

Please consider this patchset for V4.15, and it fixes one
kind of long-term I/O hang issue in either block legacy path
or blk-mq.

The current SCSI quiesce isn't safe and easy to trigger I/O deadlock.

Once SCSI device is put into QUIESCE, no new request except for
RQF_PREEMPT can be dispatched to SCSI successfully, and
scsi_device_quiesce() just simply waits for completion of I/Os
dispatched to SCSI stack. It isn't enough at all.

Because new request still can be comming, but all the allocated
requests can't be dispatched successfully, so request pool can be
consumed up easily.

Then request with RQF_PREEMPT can't be allocated and wait forever,
then system hangs forever, such as during system suspend or
sending SCSI domain alidation in case of transport_spi.

Both IO hang inside system suspend[1] or SCSI domain validation
were reported before.

This patch introduces preempt only mode, and solves the issue
by allowing RQF_PREEMP only during SCSI quiesce.

Both SCSI and SCSI_MQ have this IO deadlock issue, this patch fixes
them all.

- fix one race as pointed out by Bart
- pass 'op' to blk_queue_enter() as suggested by Christoph

- add Reviewed-by & Tested-by
- one line change in patch 5 for checking preempt request

- borrow Bart's idea of preempt only, with clean
implementation(patch 5/patch 6)
- needn't any external driver's dependency, such as MD's

- fix one tiny race by introducing blk_queue_enter_preempt_freeze()
given this change is small enough compared with V4, I added
tested-by directly

- reorganize patch order to make it more reasonable
- support nested preempt freeze, as required by SCSI transport spi
- check preempt freezing in slow path of of blk_queue_enter()
- add "SCSI: transport_spi: resume a quiesced device"
- wake up freeze queue in setting dying for both blk-mq and legacy
- rename blk_mq_[freeze|unfreeze]_queue() in one patch
- rename .mq_freeze_wq and .mq_freeze_depth
- improve comment

- introduce q->preempt_unfreezing to fix one bug of preempt freeze
- call blk_queue_enter_live() only when queue is preempt frozen
- cleanup a bit on the implementation of preempt freeze
- only patch 6 and 7 are changed

- drop the 1st patch in V1 because percpu_ref_is_dying() is
enough as pointed by Tejun
- introduce preempt version of blk_[freeze|unfreeze]_queue
- sync between preempt freeze and normal freeze
- fix warning from percpu-refcount as reported by Oleksandr



Bart Van Assche (1):
block: Convert RQF_PREEMPT into REQ_PREEMPT

Ming Lei (7):
blk-mq: only run hw queues for blk-mq
block: tracking request allocation with q_usage_counter
block: pass 'op' to blk_queue_enter()
percpu-refcount: introduce __percpu_ref_tryget_live
blk-mq: return if queue is frozen via current blk_freeze_queue_start
block: support PREEMPT_ONLY
SCSI: set block queue at preempt only when SCSI device is put into
