    Subject[PATCH 4.14 040/193] dm mpath: remove annoying message of blk_get_request() returned -11
    4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


    From: Ming Lei <>

    commit 9dc112e2daf87b40607fd8d357e2d7de32290d45 upstream.

    It is very normal to see allocation failure, especially with blk-mq
    request_queues, so it's unnecessary to report this error and annoy

    In practice this 'blk_get_request() returned -11' error gets logged
    quite frequently when a blk-mq DM multipath device sees heavy IO.

    This change is marked for stable@ because the annoying message in
    question was included in stable@ commit 7083abbbf.

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